    Ah, it's only money. Spend the $34k and you'll be good to go for the next 15 minutes. Where "they" got the term SUPER car is beyond me! You can look up the definition and it means "very good or pleasant". I just don't know what is very good or pleasant about a car like this. In the real world, where 99.99% of live, we look at people driving these IDIOT CARS and just shake our heads at their stupidity. Stupid people, you know....those are the people who fall for the term "German Engineering." I rest my case. Now, if the damn thing could fly...that would be another story indeed.

    Any other car nerds wondering what "A Service" means exactly? I wondered and unfortunately, Google seems to think "A Service" is the same as "a service". As in, "We brought the car in for a service." Useless. I've been into cars my whole life and owned them for over 20 years at this point so not sure how I don't know this.

    "Mid 2000's car?" This is a new car to me. The last time I was in a Mercedes showroom they had one of these, new, for sale. It was awe inspiring, but my friend's late eighties Mercedes' A/C needed repair - that's why we were there in the first place - and it was over 5K. Over $5,000 to repair the air conditioning in a late eighties, garden variety Mercedes. In 2006. This is why I would never buy one.

    the SLS and SLR are both great cars for different reasons. The SLR is a leagues above in terms of engineering design and the costs reflect it. Still today nothing makes that bassy rumble like the SLR's m113k engine with the massive intake plenum and side exit exhausts. SLRs are very reliable btw, just not cheap to fix. Watch the harry's garage MSO SLR roadtrip!

    It's pretty sad when for maintenance reasons, you're glad you bought a Lotus, instead of a Mercedes. Ed will pay $5000 more in repairs on his SLR McLaren than I paid for my Lotus Exige. In 4 years I've spent right at $6000 on repairs, including a new transaxle, tires, coilovers, suspension rebuild, HID / LED headlights, etc. And I've put a shit-ton more mileage on mine. (It has 98K miles). Admittedly, I've done all the work myself, so there's very little labor cost in that $6000. Still, most mechanical parts for the Lotus are ridiculously cheap. The SLR is an incredible car, but for me, maintenance costs on consumables alone would take the fun out of ownership, and the fear of a major failure would make me scared to drive it. I don't see how anyone worth less than $10M can justify owning one, as there are plenty of less costly alternatives with a similar fun factor.
