Depreciation is horrible and the engine loves to leak oil and the tires are a few grand every 2 years and the brakes are like 4 grand.

Pass but fun to drive!

How could the brakes be 4k? explain yourself!
Actually probably more. 4 AMG rotors + brake pads + labor.

Hell I bet 5 grand.

Carbon Fiber rotors will last the life of the car. Of course having those on a street car is a bad idea they'll squeak something awful.

Too bad that model is made during MB's dark days (2000-2005), quality wise.

That car will spend the majority of its life at a service shop/dealer due to continual warning/false error messages.

Avoid at all costs. Plus the SL especially with that engine understeers like a pig. It's more like a american muscle car. As long as the road is straight, no problem. But watch out at turn 1.

The V12 is heavy... handling is not awesome around turns at the limit... very true. I've driven a couple of these and while I wouldn't choose it, it was sure fun to mash the pedal to the metal!
