If anyone is interested let me know... the car is under FULL warranty till 101k miles or 4/2015!!!! The warranty is chrysler service contract - its bumper to bumper.. as good as a new car or cpo warranty it covers anything, just take it to your local benz dealer, everyone on the benz forums uses it. In addition to pics, it has SL63 trunk spoiler, and full 6000K lighting (led parking lights, license plate lights, and low beams) plus new rear tires (fronts only have 600 miles)..

2004 SL600
MILEAGE: 31,8XX


anyways, i am so not 100% on doing this.. I just have a really sweet opportunity to buy a hotel with a few buddies and keep a few rooms for ourselves, and can use this money to do that and make my payment a lot sweeter...


if interested PM me an offer... With warranty + tires + more mods.. I still can do the car for under $50k.. ($48,900 with warranty, 45,800 without)

The car without warranty and stock at manheim is going for $37k with these miles.. (plus fees, transport, and fixing the car up).. this car is a creampuff AZ car wiht a clean carfax/autocheck.

I don't know if I will even do this.. because its a once in a lifetime car.. its basically an SL65.. if you put ecu/tcu tune for $1699 the car is as good as an 07 SL65, and looks like 1... for a fraction of the cost.

Just making money and getting a couple free rooms in a nice place (and I love the beach) - makes me even ponder this so let me know via pm or respond here that you are interested.


As far as mods go:

MODS:

20x9 Maya MRS Powder Coated Matte Black Centers/Gloss Black Lips
20x11 Maya MRS Powder Coated Matte Black Centers/Gloss Black Lips
Vredestein 255/30/20 (front) 295/25/20(rear) but these are like 305s on other brand tires
Renntech ELM
Floored Fab Custom exhaust (Jet Hot coated black)
BMC Air Filters
All the fins and door handle pieces paint matched to the car
07 SL65 Bumpers
07 SL65 3 fin grill
07 SL65 LED Tails
07 SL65 Front
07 SL65 3rd break light
Painted headlights similar to how it is on an SLR
Matte black custom paint scheme (painted not vinyl because the vinyl didn't look as OEM as the paint - the previous owner did this, i love it and it looks 100% times better in person, many have said this to me)


1 thing to note ***The exhaust on the car sounds insane!!! Chris did an amazing job*** Sounds very exotic since were talking 12 cylinders

BTW:

$1699 and you gain 85+whp and 150 tq to the wheels!


thats not including a TCU tune to free torque management and raise redline.


SL/CL600s with ECU/TCU software ONLY run low 11s with 1.7 60' on 20s with summer tires

upgrade intercoolers and add full exhaust (which I already have ) and car will be in 10s..check dragtimes out to see

so tempted to purchase this as my lease on my Range Rover is up in a month or so!!! give me some time to think

Let me know and keep me posted I have 2 others 1 in florida and one in cali like yourself who are interested. It seriously is a one in a lifetime car.. One day I wake up and I am like no matter how good an investment I don't think I can part with it (that's why I have been buying more mods for it! lol) and then the next day, my logical side takes over and I say it has to go because in the longer picture, this will be better for me.

On another note, I ordered 19" Avant Garde M328 wheels.. these are the wheels on the IWC edition SL63 (the matte white color sl63 that comes with the watch and stickers for like a $30k premium at around $185,000.

Here are the wheels on the IWC car:



These wheels are concave and I am having these powder coated satin/semi gloss black. So it will accent the bling factor and also accent the matte pieces on the car. Plus the 19"s will be better for handling the power and lighter than what it has now. The center caps will be satin as well. I will POST pics when they are installed!

Also, since the car is debadged, and I like the rear like that except for the star under the 3rd brake light - the 600 models come with UGLY v12 emblems on the side of the car in between the top and bottom side gills.

I ordered 07 (because the badges changed in 07 and the body of the car is an 07-08 SL65) V12 BITURBO badges that go on the fenders like the sl55, and sl65 amg..

They are going to be painted glossy black like the emblems and put on the fenders. The car isn't badged sl65, but these fender badges look really good, and unlike the previous owner, I want to accent the v12 it has. So these badges say v12 biturbo on the fender instead of the ugly v12 in the middle of the side gills - below is how it will look in glossy black, like this:

M lifestyle send me a pm.


Hey I snapped some interior pics, going to upload those later today. I am also going to try and get a vid of the exhaust.. (basically sounds a notch sweeter than the SL65 stock). No drone whatsoever, its actually quiet.. hard to make a turbo car real loud without straight pipes. You can't hear it inside with the radio remotely on. Sounds intoxicating outside the car!


I have a few people interested. My buddies are really pressing me to partner up with them for this hotel, and I am looking to move the car now.

$46,000 WITH WARRANTY.


I am going to ebay it if I don't find someone (it will sell for at least that, a non sport package sl600 same miles with NO WARRANTY sold for $42,888 last week).. just sending a personal message to everyone who inquired about the car and giving someone a great deal.


Mercedes-Benz : SL-Class: eBay Motors (item 150438714583 end time May-08-10 07:37:04 PDT)


That is the car... how hideous without the sport package? Let alone $20k in mods like mine has :)

Warranty till 4/2015 or 101k so it has another $5k in goodies (new wheels, sl63 spoiler, all the lighting, etc)

Couple interior shots.. and to notice that there isn't the usual wear on the driver bolster.. mint sides, mint interior.. nothing to note.


I am also going to try and get a vid of the exhaust TOMORROW (saturday 5/15).. (basically sounds a notch sweeter than the SL65 stock). No drone whatsoever, its actually quiet.. hard to make a turbo car real loud without straight pipes. You can't hear it inside with the radio remotely on. Sounds intoxicating outside the car!

reserve is at 47?
Just about.. couple hundred shy. I have someone very interested who offered $46k a couple days ago, and told him $47 YESTERDAY.. hes letting me know tomorrow or Tuesday.. to be honest I would be surprised if we don't make a deal.. but since he had to "think about it" over the weekend. I told him 1st person to give deposit and agree to $47k is getting it. I have told a handful of people (what I am posting here) who contacted me via phone or email from the ebay auction.

This isn't a car to lose over $500, $1000, hell even $2000 ... chrysler no longer is giving the warranty to mercedes as of 5/20/2010 (check auction I posted what chrysler posted to their warranty resellers). Luckily I extended mine last month so I am fine :) till 2015 or 101k miles.

And the body upgrades + paint + $3500 exhaust system.. and $5k wheels + more misc mods.. are a steal for the price.
