New SL550

Hello,

Have been doing lots of tests drives lately. Wanted a V8 convertible. Was leaning towards an SL63 (great motor), but they are hard to come by.

A healthy inventory of SL550's in the NE. Went back to local dealer for another drive, this time with my wife. She really took to it. Even lit up the tires once.

So pulled the trigger on an '09 SL550. Black on black. Seems to have most of the options available.

Will pick it up tomorrow.

Welcome to the forums CPBRI!

I'm the owner of a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL. Wonderful car. I use these forums mostly for mechanical insight and maintenance to basically repair and upgrade my somewhat classic. As for you as an owner of a new SL550, what do you hope to get out of the forums? I'm curious to other's use of auto forums for newer cars.

Nice purchase. Any pics?

Thanks for the welcome FW.

I visit these forums to hear from other like minded car guys/gals. Always looking to learn something about the car and its capability.

No pics yet. Will pick it up tomorrow or Monday.
