So Much Fun!
May 12, 2019
I found a museum quality 2004 SL500, perfect inside and out from top to bottom..Silver with grey interior, Mercedes really puts xxxx good paint if not the best quality paint you can find and their silver is just stunning.. Came with upgraded 20” AMG wheels which really make it pop.. The hardtop convertible is amazing and nothing more exhilarating hitting 89-100 plus MPH with the top down.. A real head turner and compliment catcher and people think it’s a $100,000 car, if it still looks new like mine does.. It’s so nice driving day and at night with the top down and I’ve driven 360 miles straight with the top down one warm sunny day.. The car is gorgeous with the top up or down and there aren’t a whole lot on the road which gives you some exclusivity and a degree of sophistication.. Expensive to work on? Yes, try to DIY the minor things, find a good German car INDY for the rest.. I did replace the dreaded ABC pump but all the other items were typical things you’d need to repair, service or replace on any car that age with that mileage.. I just love it, a lot of bang for your buck, it’s extremely well built, it’s very heavy, built like a bank vault and using the best quality materials.. The depreciation is a god send and has put me behind the wheel of a car that is very high quality that I couldn’t afford when it was new.. I’ve owned 5 BMW’s and four Mercedes, and this is hands down the best car purchase I ever made..
