just bought a benz sl 600. hate to say it, folks, it's faster than the spider. no, it doesn't look or sound like it, but that twin turbo, v-12 is SICK. not sure whether to celebrate the fact or be depressed about it.
you have all helped me to see the error in my ways...understand my procession:
in other words, i bought the 360 before i fully appreciated the magnitude of the car. i am now getting there.
the sl is more practical, the panaramic moonroof which goes down is so cool, it's a joke and i can take it to work every day (unlike the 360 spider). but you are all right, IT'S NOT A 360 SPIDER. i needed that smack upside the head. thanks.
exactly. it took me a week or so, and a few posts to stop comparing the two: while my sl 600 is heavy and not the 360, it is a phenomenal rig to cruise to work every day. a great, great car to drive the city streets with. the spider is still too involved a drive for that, but it is still the ultimate.
i wonder how the sl 55 compares to the sl 600: i'll probably have to jump to another forum to break that one down!
