    The best!!!! What a car. If it wasn't for the Eco button that has a mind of its own, even the dealer doesn't understand it, it is an amazing piece of kit. I love it and am getting 25mpg on a run. Noise different to the old SL63 and maybe not as head turning but still lovely.
    Eco only works with the air con off???? Occasionally comes on for a while without me doing anything. Nothing to do with the green eco button on the dashboard

    I don't understand this post. What is the issue with the eco settings on your SL?

    I've found on mine that Eco will eventually work with aircon on, but as the aircon draws power it takes a lot longer to activate, when coupled with colder weather it may not activate for 8-10 miles. Turn aircon off and its 2-3 miles.

    Thanks for the replies. The Eco function turns itself off and on randomly. It only works consistently with the air con off. The dealers don't understand and are trying to find out.

    Sorry.

    SL63 and anything labelled ECO has to be wrong. A car like that should never ever pander to the green side of motoring.

    Just drop the loud pedal and smile. It's a wonderful car and I'm first to admit I'm jealous.
