Those SLR's are sweet cars, I've got an 2004 SL and love it for cruizin' can't imagine drivin' the SLR. But I gotta say it's (my SL) not much for great handling. Actually, sticks OK but doesn't absorb the bumps as well as my M5. Maybe it's the air suspension.

Dave, how long have you had your 360? That's an impressive ride, I rented on for my business partner for his B-day had a great time, he ended up getin' a 550 from Meridian in Westwood.

What have you done to the 360? Exhaust?

yeah i guess those are pretty sweet rides...but let's be honest, there's no way it can touch mine:



yeah, i've got that thing blown...pushing about 108hp at the rear wheel. 0-60 in under a mintue fellas, so you know its the real panty dropper at the drags. Don't want to one up anyone...just thought i'd share my super sweet ride

I also have a SL55, need to take a pic and have the SL65 on order with over 600hp and 738lbs on tap to smoke the tire. I think the SL55 handles better then the SL500 with tunning done to the ABC software.

I put a exhuast on by capritso and took off the cats and put on straight pipes. Sounds like a superbike on steriods. Did you buddy buy his 550 of of matt. I got my exhaust done there.

Yeah, he did the capristo also. That seems to be the exhaust of choice over there. If you've got a capristo exhaust and enjoy droppin' lots of green on watches your in good with those guys over there. Mat is a young guy but he sure knows his shit. My buddy bought Matt's 550, which I guess was previously Cort's.
