    just go buy a real porsche for $4000 more than they ask for kit
    installation or go buy a REAL SL for that while you're at it.
    You'll find out that the 10 year old Merc has much more
    comfort than any kit. those dirty germans know their stuff

    Thank you Larry bud for the Info:

    And as for you AUTO MX,I think Porsches are junk(just my opinion)And second,We are all here to build KITS If we wanted the real thing then I guess we wouldnt be here on this forum right????Third I was researching the SL-500 for a friend Im into Lambos,I guess you couldnt see that by my name.And didnt your mother ever tell you "If you dont have anything nice to say,KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

    Hey, I dont think AutoMx meant any disrespect by what he said. I think he is just trying to protect you guys from making a bad investment in the sl500. All of us here with the exception of a few, are building cars that cost between 60 to 250K, so for us it makes perfect sense to want to build these as replicas, as some of us really can't afford these expensive exotic cars. Personally, I think the sl500 is not worth paying 15K, when you can buy similar used sl500' for the same price or slightly more. Good luck with the project you start.

    yeah, since here in southern cal, theres alot of rich people
    and especially true in this town, which is on top 10 richest
    last time i checked. getting almost run over by lambos and
    ferraris isnt OMG I SAW ONE event, its just ok theres another
    one.. theres alot of aston martins and porsches and etc...
    you get the point.

    in any case, like i said in other thread, unless:
    a. this is THE car and you just have to build a kit because you
    still hate germans from WW2 or whatever it could be
    b. you are surrounded by pintos, farm equipment, and old
    mustangs or lebarons
    c. live in such bad weather that any metal will corrode and
    you think fiberglass will be wiser (i lived in quebec i know)

    unless u desperately fit one of those, the SL is not a good
    investment, nomatter where you are.
    money in ( not = ) money out
    lambo is one thing, but those cost 10x more than SLs
    just a thought..or many

    Re:MERCEDES SL 500

    I've checked out the LeBaron/Mustang kits. Not close enough to pass for real thing for me. Got the Jovi tape some where. Those guys can't make a video. Too funny. ;D
    If someone is going to sell a kit for a 2003 500SL to fit a 70's 450SL, well maybe.....
