    How long will it have 557 bhp ;-)

    I hope it's wagon, they are much cooler

    I looked at a 14 plate CLS SB 350 CDi AMG Line today at Exeter MB, sooooooo pretty, now that is a lovely car with a V8 up front

    Hey John

    Sorry to hear of the trouble you're having with the SL. You have certainly spent a lot of time and money on getting it right and it's sad to see you decide to move it on. You certainly were very generous with your help when I was looking for mine late last year and for that I am very grateful.

    Maybe you'll get to keep the SL for a little while and enjoy it before it goes....the weather is getting better and is asking for the top to be dropped....

    Cheers Raj, don't be put off by my experience- I am almost certain someone will buy mine from me and be posting on here in 2-3 years time waxing lyrical on how fantastic a SLs are and how his or her motoring has cost nothing and hassle free! Just your luck.
    Anyway I'm on another path and think I've found 'the one '

    That is indeed the question, turbos = GAD or MSL!
    It's a saloon - sorry just we will have the XC90 for wagon use and I think the E looks better in booted form IMO...
    And.....that looks nice you know you want to!

    A good point, however I was trying to avoid continuance of the open wallet surgery I've had to endure over the past year...albeit Dave's is entirely voluntary and justified!

    Exactly my point!
    I love the fact that to look at it looks like a 'standard' E63...at least to the uninitiated

    MSL all the way John. Some serious tuning goes on there, especially on the 5.5 Biturbos;)
