    I don't have experience for either or of those above mentioned cars, but if you have not seen it yet, Jeremy Clarkson compares sitting in the black series, like sitting on a pile of rocks

    I drove the SL BS and I don't know what Clarkson refers to. Unless the suspension is different on US models, it was pretty good. I'd say almost like a regular SL. It handled 10x better than a regular SL too. I know the seats are different: EU models have carbon fiber bucket seats, US models have regular leather seats.

    well the msrp for the SLS is 183k, so paying 219k for a used one would just be silly.

    i know you said you want to keep it within the MB fam, but i can't help but suggest looking at the R8 V10.
    A successful man is someone who wakes up in the morning, goes to sleep at night, and does whatever makes him happy in between.

    Happiness is the only thing worth pursuing.


    A turbo, exhaust gasses go into the turbocharger and spin it, witchcraft happens and you go faster. - Jeremy Clarkson

    I had a gallardo for a while and I just sold an a5, b5s4 and will be selling an a6 soon...no more audis lol.

    that sls is actually a steal...it is an alu-beam color, designo two tone tan interior, carbon fiber, carbon ceramic wheels, sports susp, b&o sound..upgraded steering wheel...upgraded wheels...extra carbon fiber including mirror and engine....to spec it out would be around 241k

    the slr is a gentleman's "race" car as told to me by my local slr mechanic. and i actually know a chicago guy who tracks his.

    the car is definately somewhat stiff on the road, not what i would call precise, and kind of clunky, like a race car.. reminds me of a viper.

    but it is very user friendly has a/c, etc and the transmission is a normal 5 speed AMG MB unit, like we have in 2 other cars in our garage. it is idiot proof, hold the gas pedal to the floor and it will automatically shift at red line.

    i live in a ferrari town, with f cars everywhere, but i never see other slr's on the street. i know guys that own them but never see anyone drive them. therefore they draw a crowd, especially when the doors are open. the kid's like me to drive them to school in it.

    you know how a hayabusa is very docile at low rpms around town and is only a twist of the throttle away from instant gratification (in any gear) because it has a motor from God.. the slr is kind of like that, not as gentle as a busa but when you get on it, it pulls like a freight train.

    the exhaust sound doesn't do that much for me but the supercharger sounds fabulous. a VERY fun car, that is very rare around chicago.

    downside, the car is mostly carbon fiber and i don't know of many body shops that can work on it. the maintenance schedule for the car is very race car like. it was built by mcLaren in Woking, Surrey, England, UK and EVERYTHING about the car is EXPENSIVE.


    there a very few cars in the US like the slr. it is NOT your normal car but it is a cool, FUN car..

    pm me and i will share some fun pics of the underside of the car with you.

    for a daily between SLR/sl65 BS/clk BS i'd definitely say SLR is the most comfy, ive never driven one but the interior is pretty much an authentic normal SL while both the BS's are obviously a bit stripped,when it comes to the money/what performance you're getting for it i'd honestly say try to get a hold of an SLS since its the best mix in terms of speed/drivability/$.... on the other hand a CL65 would suffice i think if you want a comfy daily cruiser that can haul ass not as agile obviously but you'd be surprised, no track car but on the roads its a blast... plus they'd be cheaper than everything else except a clk bs at this point i think, let us know what you decide!
