Just wanted to introduce myself into this forum. I am currently in the market for an SL500 and am eager to find out anything about the car. I currently have a 1992 300E that I plan on keeping because it's such a great car. I also have a 2000 Mustang GT w/ a Supercharger that puts out 460 HP but I'm looking to get rid of it and replace it with the SL. I have about $50K into the Mustang and, frankly, it's a piece of junk compared to my old Mercedes that just continues to be a rock-solid good car. So I'm looking for those same good charachteristics with a little more pep in an SL500. I love cars of all types, and the SL500 seems to me to be a car that is second to none.
