not to be a hater here, but the slr is one of the ugliest cars MB has ever produced. Just awful in every way.

Furthermore, seeing 2 MB's is the best day of your life???????

10 days ago I was at the dealer to to drop off a car for a recall and witnessed the whole dealership going gaga over the just delivered SL65 BS. I was offered the car (haha) i.e. no buyer yet.
This morning I had to pick up a car from the dealer and figured I would use the opportunity to show the car to my wife.... something about planting a seed maybe
Well, the car was not in the showroom anymore a salesman confirmed the car was sold last Saturday

What recession????????

The SLR 722S roadster is the best looking (and sounding) Mercedes ever produced.

And everywhere I see you post, it's just more bull*****. Plead with your wife to give you some, maybe then you wont come off as such a pretentious ***** whose just so far above us mere mortals

Furthermore, you already know the title is exaggerated to add some humor to the thread. Quit being a tool just to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

Tasho3, thanks for the pics! The SL65BS is definitely a different beast in person than in pictures.

sorry I don't care that much what my mercedes sounds like. I'm over the "i need to hear the exhaust" phase of my life.

In fact, sound would be about the last thing I would look for.

1. handling feel
2. front end grip
3. Attractive exterior
4. comfortable and attractive interior
5. engine power/performance
6. MANUAL GEARBOX
7. features options
8. reliability
...............................................
1,500. how the engine sounds.

hahaha, past the design of the car, the sound is the first thing you are most faced with. how can a car enthusiast not care about the music the car brings to his ears?!
