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.

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
