  1. 2013 SL550 exhaust sound - a little louder please

    R231 SL-Class
    I had a 2013 SL550 and the fellow who had it before me had the dealer replace the resonators with units from an SL63. Very nice, low rumble until you jumped on it. Then, it would ROAR! It was fun, but I prefer a more quiet car.
  2. WTB: 2017 SL65 19”-20” Forged Wheels

    For Sale/Wanted/Trade/Giveaway
    Looking to buy a set of the forged, OEM wheels that came on the 2017 SL65 AMG. I want the polished, clear coat version. Wheels must be perfect, never repaired or refinished. Might buy with TPMS, caps, tires, etc. I am in Southern California, please PM me, thanks.
  3. donut for 231

    R231 SL-Class
    Has anyone here considered the fact that there is virtually NO PLACE to put your FLAT, full size wheel & tire IN the car, once you remove it and put on the spare? You MIGHT get it into the passenger seat area, but what if you are driving with a companion? I guess you could carry a chain &...
  4. F/S 245/50 R18 RUN FLATS set/4 ONLY 230 miles

    For Sale/Wanted/Trade/Giveaway
    Bridgestone EL400-02 245/50 R18 Run Flat Tires. I just got a new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S560 sedan and these tires came on the car from the factory. They were on the car for one week, and driven 230 miles. I then put on different tires. This was done at the MB dealer. These tires are absolutely...
  5. 2013 SL63 vs. 2017 SL450

    R231 SL-Class
    To me, this would be a very simple decision: Get the new SL450. What in the frigging world will you do with the 63? If you are like probably 99.8% of SL63 owners, you will NOT take it to the track. So, where does that leave you with your ridiculously overpowered toy? Well, I guess you can...
  6. Spare tire question

    W222 S-Class
    IMO, run flat tires are the kiss of death to ride quality. When I ordered my 2015 S550, I got the dealer to agree to swap out the RFT for Bridgestone Serenity Plus conventional tires. As it turned out, he didn't have the tires when I took delivery, but it was the end of the month and they...
  7. Beautiful shots of a Mercedes S-class sedan x Vossen VFS-2 22" Wheels

    W222 S-Class
    22" wheels on a W222 are like 5" heels on a lovely woman: they look great, they look sexy, but that's where the good stuff ends. Wheels of that size, with tires having virtually no sidewall, flush ride quality down the toilet. Just sayin.:D
  8. 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet is Larger, More Luxurious

    Mercedes-Benz News
    Do we think the new E Cab will have the AirMatic option?
  9. Next-Gen Mercedes CLS to Ditch V8 Option

    Mercedes-Benz News
    As far as I am concerned, the ability to have the V8 was the only great thing about the CLS.
  10. Arctic White vs. Black GL

    X166 GL / GLS-Class
    Palladium Silver GL's for 2014 I have a 2013 S550 in the regular black. It looks fantastic when just washed. The next day, even if it sits in the garage all day, it looks dusty. By day three, it is filthy. I would NEVER have another black car. I just ordered a new GL350. It will now be a...
  11. 1986 560SL ebay question?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I have a 2004 SL500 with 21,000 miles on it. I am the original owner. Any suggestions as to if and when I should be replacing these parts?
  12. 2014 GL

    General Mercedes-Benz
    I just ordered a new GL350 from a California dealer. With the 2013's already sold out for the year, a factory order placed now will be for a 2014. There are some changes for 2014. For the first time on the GL, Palladium Silver will be a color choice. The current Arctic White will be changed...
  13. Early 2013 SL Promo Video

    R231 SL-Class
    A few months ago, I found a link to what must have been a factory made promo video for the new SL. It featured a copper colored car being driven by an older gentleman, through an ultra modern cityscape. It showed him getting into the car, lowering the top and then driving around. It seemed...
  14. Can I order a 2013 SL550 that looks like THIS?

    R231 SL-Class
    I realize that I am in the minority, at least on this site, but I prefer my cars to be less aggressive looking and more on the "beautiful" side. A few months ago, this photo was posted online. It shows a new SL550, with what I would call a "luxury" styled front end, as opposed to the "sport"...
  15. 2013 SL550 "Luxury" or "Sport" models???

    R230 SL-Class
    As a long time SL owner, I have watched the development of the new 2013 model. A few months ago, I was thrilled to see that, as in the past, MB was going to offer a "Luxury" version, in addition to a "Sport" or AMG version. The photo I have attached, shows a "Luxury" style front facia, which...
