Hello to everyone! I have just purchased my "Dream Car", an '05 SL65 AMG and will probably be spending a lot of time on this forum. This is not my first go around with either MB or forums of this nature, although my last MB was a '72 280SE that I purchased new and kept for several years. I had been considering the purchase of an SL for a couple of years, but could not justify it in my mind, I mean to me it is an expensive toy. Nor, did I ever consider purchasing an SL65, having been leaning towards an SL500 or SL600, yes due to the cost factor. But, everything changed when I suffered an SDS (sudden death syndrome) two months ago and am very lucky to have survived it, only about 5-10% do.

So, following another discussion about purchasing an SL with my wife, she indicated to me that I was a "cheapskate" and reminded me that with regard to our financial situation "you can"t take it with you!" Thus the car I really always wanted, the SL65 is now in my garage.

Welcome and congratulations. I know how you feel. It's been a month since I got my car and I still spend many nights in the garage.
