Thanks MBworld + my SL65 Pics

I want to give a big thanks to all the members here! You guys were a huge help in making me realize the SL65 was the perfect choice for me. You guys let me know what to look for to find the perfect example of a SL65. I was able to purchase a true cream puff from a member here and best of all I was able to link up with MBworld resident expert Nick Pilotte. Nick made the buying experience as informative and worry free as possible. Nick performed the pre-inspection and outlined everything I needed to know about owning this beast and getting the most out of it. That guy sure knows his v12tt!

2005 SL65 21k miles. Flawless. Clear Bra. V2 lowering module. Tint on windows and tails. Lowenhart LSR's (not a fan but better than stock).

Every time I drive her it makes me better about my choice to buy it. I think it is near impossible to find a better rounded package for the value than an AMG SL.

I agree that these cars are a bargain for the performance and presence they offer. Aston's, Lambo's and Ferrari's are still 6 figure cars in most cases. You can pick up a 65 in great shape for half that.

Like you, I'm not a fan of the Lowenhart rims, but you can always trade em to someone who is a fan or sell them. Check Craigslist for bargains on rims. I see 19-20" rims for SL's and CLS in my area quite often for great prices.

Awesome ride. Like the wheels! Great color. But can't stand the license plate holes in the front bumper. Sorry. That would need to be fixed if it was me (especially if you live in a state where you don't need front license plate). But other than that... sa-weet.

I like the wheels. Although Im not a fan of silver cars, those rims work well and look good.

Congrats and awesome ride! I love the stance, condition and few mods (though not a fan of the wheels either). Too bad someone mounted the front license plate Enjoy it in good health!

Congrats, great car with a great color choice. Have to agree with fixing the front plate holes and maybe ditch the wheels. That's the way to buy a car though, injoy the ride!!
