    Default slr prices and as a daily

    anybody use an slr as a daily?

    are the slr prices comming down since the
    sls came out?

    what would be a better deal right now slr or sl65 black series?

    I know that you have to pay to play....is putting miles on an slr gona make me take out a second mortgage?

    Those two are my number one lust and has been since it came out.

    my brother is suggesting a clk black instead since they are not as expensive...but not really what i want.

    any owners wanna chime in?

    This is the only place you can see question like that:P

    i think the slr is in a different category than the others....

    the sls is more of a mass production car(limited mass production better) and the clk black is a substitude....but the slr is a real supercar....

    it has been my (within reach) dream car for quite some time now. and I am really hoping the prices on that plummet so I can pick one up, and cruise with my wife till we run of gas or money lol

    i have driven an SLR and well,,, lets just say it's awkward steering and the transmission kill me!

    for daily?
    no way unless your commute is 2miles each way...

    i can't even do a clk black as a daily- theyre just not comfortable cars for any kind of "commute"
    my E63 wagon i can definitely drive everyday!

    Maybe a normal SL63 for a daily... but a black? too much for a daily....

    just like me I'm waiting for the right CGT, but not for daily

    Here is a quote I found about the SLR

    "The SLR feels deliciously like a racer. The ride is admittedly very firm and the tyres thump over cats' eyes but it is never harsh. Having said that, great care needs to be taken over speed humps. This is no softies' supercar after all: it's the real thing."

    "The five-speed automatic gearbox is ideal. You can select relaxed automatic changes, a sporting automatic or full manual over-ride. There are also three gearchange speeds: "sport", "supersport" or "race"."

    I drove one but not for a while..I liked it but anything over half and hour would have told me if i could daily it or.
    the commute to and forth is about 15 miles.
    what about a sl65 black or sls? any opinon on those?
    I wanna keep it in the Mb family.
