Either way, nice cars. I was never a fan of MB but I do appreciate a clean AMG. I liked your M5 the best though..
I'm old but look young

I cant stand the SL Benz but at least you got Mars Red. Very rare. Plus the wheels are nice and classy in my opinion. I just feel like the SL benz, even in a 63 motor is so damn heavy and sloshy. Plus they feel like they're going to break everytime you push them (maybe this is because the times I have driven SL's, I have had problems...) but to each his own.

Like I said, in Mars Red it is a hell of a looker, but you can't tell me you don't miss the sh!t out of that M5

i don't think he took it as douchey. It clearly cost him a lot of money to get that car the way he wanted. For the hp, the luxury, hard top convertible he could've gotten something more reliable--that's all.

I wanted him to tell me he got his first handjob in an SL so wanted to own one or something

Damn, whoever parked your car must've been a total moron. I hope they're paying for the respray and new lip!

Can't wait to see the numbers she puts down with the headers and pulley. Get a video!

Are you up in the Indian Hills area? I think I've seen an SL that looks like yours up there a few times.
