    I’m guessing the Obsidian one is your new toy?

    It's a 113 w 722.9.

    The customer has had it for.a year or so I believe, so I think it must have been a different one.

    How many miles did the one on autotrader have?

    Probably a different one then , it was the colour and wheels combi that looked familiar . Very tempting the SL's , it's one of my go-to's on Autotrader :D .
    Enjoy your new SL

    I must say, I did want a 600 but I can only take so much fixing cars on my off time :)
    That, and there's a 20k price difference.....

    I love my SL and don't think a V8 is better than mine (certainly from a handling perspective on modern V6s turn and it's nimbleness is awesome) .......however, I've owned a few V8s and do miss that sound and torque.......

    I agree about the V8, it's very satisfying to hear the V8 start up and rumble along the road. I love my SL500 but recently I have been thinking of getting a Maserati V8 which means the SL may have to go.:(

    It's only money! The main expense is likely to be service costs but I have a Maserati indy fairly close to me.

    The only obstacle is that my wife loves the SL and is against it being sold.
