BUY the SA SL600!! You'll keep it several years, it will still have tremendous value when (if) you sell it. Drive it, enjoy it, don't worry about the future value - which will still be good. Like has...

That makes sense. I have my copy of the last US owner's title stamped by US Border patrol as being exported. I'm guessing that would suffice. Thanks for your input and thoughts.

Thanks - I might have to go that route. My other option is to drive it to Florida for the month of April and try to sell it there. I do believe this is more of a Florida car than a Southern Ontario...

I think you're right - my timing is probably not the best, certainly for 75% of the country (and definitely not Canada). The car is serviced by the local dealer (including the hydraulics), I have all...

Thanks guys. I think the key here is the car is worth what someone is prepared to pay for it and where it’s located. Canadians probably not the best market, though I shouldn’t discount them...

It could be the springs got mis-directed. Happened to me though I got stuck in the open position. If you can get it open, it's very simple to remove and check the springs and gears are set up...

I should have clarified - that was $161 Canadian dollars - still about $120 USD. Even installed, as you suggest, that's a ridiculous amount. The job was simple, and actually fun. Making me think I...

IMO, the roll bar is not meant to be up when driving. It will deploy in the case of a rollover. The windscreen will only do a proper job (assuming top down) with the roll bar down.
