Newbie looking for first MB Roadster advice!

I'm new to the forum, living in Middle Tennessee, Nashville area. I've been looking at used roadsters and in my price range, I'm seeing a couple of options:

A bunch of 2005-06 SLK350's are hitting the market, with mileage in the 50K range. Nice, but a bit tight for my big frame. (6'1", 280 lbs.)

A few 2004 and 2003 SL500's are out there in the same mileage range at about the same money.

Whatever I get will be a daily driver for a 45 mile commute. I currently drive a 2006 Mustang Convertible that I've put 150k miles on.

Considerations are reliability, comfort, durability and of course, enjoyment factor. Practicality and MPG factor in, but honestly, if that were high on the list, I'd be looking at Hondas.

SO- what are your thoughts?
