sorry anyways.

But sl red was too good and the tv guy asked the owner whether he opens the roof and the owner says sometime back when he was going with roof open some guy from the bus was spitting into the car,from that moment he stopped opening the roof

any new pics V10.please post some pics if you have sometime.
Hahah... but if you ever happen to see a red SL55 then it should be ours. I really like the SL55 too. Especially the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde personality of the car. One moment you could be cruising around in a comfortable full size GT coupe and the next moment you could be flooring a 500BHP AMG convertible. I dont think the car even has a competitor in todays market. Seriously name a 500BHP Hardtop convertible GT. Maybe a FCal but thats about it. Anyways-

@akzz - This car does not have AIRMATIC. Instead it has active body control alongwith hydraulic height levelling suspension. There is no problem with the suspension and it is working perfectly fine and raising the car to three different levels.
correction- Sorry, The previous photos were taken with the car in the medium height and not the lowest hence the issue.
Also with 19" wheels > less tyre profile > Relatively harsher ride. Plus this is not the place to be lowering your car and riding on big wheels as liv2drv pointed out.

Mr Kapoor's Cayenne S in grey belongs to the son, if I'm not mistaken.

Hey that wheels on your SL55 resemble very similar to that on the Porsche 911 turbo ones.

Great pic with the dog, V10. Just went through the entire thread, kudos to your garage and a great deal on the SL55- as Liv mentioned earlier, i never thought i would like a red SL till i saw yours! Just one question- how come the ML in spite of the widespread negative reviews? What were the other options?

PS: I really respect the privacy thing- these days not many people seem to value that!

Thanks Nirav. Well we had a sporty self driven SUV already and were now looking for a luxurious and comfortable SUV and after looking across the options available in the market, we found the ML the most comfortable.

Thanks and yes you sure can! and in winters with the top down it is a dream. As a matter of fact, i was driving this today with the top down in daytime and can never get the same feeling in a traditional coupe.

Also, driving today, passed under a small tunnel in Dwarka and blasted it there! Mad sound! just gotta love those tunnels.
