I bought a new SL500 in 2003 from C&C. Fitted it with AMG kit and 19inch multipiece wheels. 255/35R19s front and 285/30R19s rear. The car looked great. Drove

like a dream and the folding hard top worked really well. Engine and gearbox were problem free, but the ABC suspension was prone to creaking and leaking. That

aside, I enjoyed my 5 years of ownership. One of the best cars I ever owned.

The problem I faced when selling it was the low low price it fetched. Bought the car for $460k, plus AMG kit and rims $15k. Omv was 130k if I remembered correctly.

Mileage 30k km. Sold the car for 205k. Huge depreciation.

I think AMG cars are fanstastic. But looking at their Omv and selling price, not going to fetch good resale value. Same with BMW M cars.

Could the huge depreciation be due to the COE fluctuations not in your favour at the point of your selling?

Nope. Coe was neglible compared to cost of car. For sure Coe price in 2003 was much lower than in 2008 when I sold the SL for my GTR.

Now I remember,,,COE for my GTR in June 2008 was only 18k.

What I meant was that with Omv of only 130k , the SL had a big profit margin for C&C
