Im getting a little tired of seeing black SL55 like mine all over houston. I ate dinner tonight at Mortons, 2 other black SL55 after on saturday night there were 5, yes 5 SL55 at Bobs Chophouse 3 were black, 1 silver, 1 red. Im thinking of doing some completely outrageous color, I saw a pic on here of a pink SL55, a mary kay car i think. Im not brave enough to do that, but I have a few colors in mind, I definately want something unique, Im looking for any and all pics you've got. Im open to any ideas about color, I was thinking something bright bright.
That is horrible looking and the owner was crazy to not take the top bid for it.
The SL's are everywhere now and it is only going to get worse as the price comes down more. I live in the sticks, back woods town. Until I bought my SL55 I had NEVER not once seen an SL55 here on the road not EVER. As a matter of fact I had never even seen a SL500 around here. Now I am seeing at least one a day, 4 yesterday. When people around here can afford used high end cars I know the price is about to come out of the bottom of the car.
The rare Color Blue was the reason I refused to let MB pay me huge money for my SL65!
MB had some issues at one point finding and fixing a problem with my SL65. They offered me huge money to "take me out of the car" but I refused their money because I love the car and the ultra rare color... One of only 3 ever built in Black Opal Metallic(Midnight Metallic Blue)I am told...
About 2 years ago I researched and discovered that out of 98 SL65s offered for sale nationally.... 51 were silver , 44 were black and only 3 were in other colors (grey,red,white,blue etc).
So doing the math using those numbers, in the US you basically have less then a 1% chance of finding a used SL65 in a specific color other then silver or black.... The numbers are just a slightly better for the SL55 because there are more of them maybe a 3% chance....
