    2013 SL550

    Ordered a Shadow Grey Matte SL550 with Black leather and Black Ash interior in January and took delivery in April. Nice companion to my 2001 Silver/Black Z8.

    I have over 40,000 miles on my Z8 and will never sell it. The SL550 is a very different car but a lot of fun to drive as well. 429 HP and 560ft torque. Really fast and explosive acceleration at high speeds.

    I'm loving my AMG SL55 too, just drove it to Sedona and back in an 1000 mile round trip, and it's simply a gem of a car on the open road. However, the 8mpg I'm getting around town has me looking at a Nissan Leaf lease as it's less than the cost of filling the SL up every month!

    My new SL550 is getting 18 city and 24 hwy with their new ECO system. The motor shuts down when you are at a complete stop and starts when you take your foot off the brake.

    Thats the start stop system many cars now come with. I personally dislike it, strongly. I find it annoying. Good news is it can be turned off with a button press. Either way its a really nice car! Congratulations!
