Thinking of a newer SL55 - help
I am thinking of a buying a used 2005 or 2006 SL55. One car I am looking at has 20" rims. I am 50 yrs old and my wife is 51. While we both like fast cars, we liked how smooth and quiet the SL550 was in standard base model. My questions are: Will this car, with these rims be as nearly as quiet and smooth as a base model 550? How reliable are these cars compared to a newer SL550 (which I understand our very reliable). Anything to be aware of when talking to sellers? I would really appreciate any help as this is a huge decision for us and represents a lot of money to us. But we think we might really enjoy this a lot (as compared to a 5th Wheel or something like that).
The prices I am seeing for these models range from about 39.9K to $42K which seems reasonable. Thoughts?
Thanks so much in advance.
