    Re: SLS update

     i guess it will take somewhere from 5-8 weeks for the car to be shipped, customs cleared and plates slapped on.

    the funny thing is that so far i have never seen one in the metal !

    Re: SLS update

     The more I see the car in the flesh and the more my liking of it keeps growing . . I have seen in town, at the dealer , on the track...and it always has a great road presence .

    It will be a fun car....... hope the waiting is not too long....

    CONGRATS AGAIN ! What a car.....and you will spoiled for life on "noises" it does......(except for the sunsation of course...)


    Re: SLS update

    Sounds great, Sherif...can't wait to read your first driving report and to see the first photos. 

    Funny enough, the sales CEO of my local Mercedes dealership (factory owned) is a customer of mine now and offered me any Mercedes I want without any waiting time and of course the SLS came into my mind. Unfortunately I can't afford (financially, socially, etc.) it, so I'm looking forward to hear about yours.

    Re: SLS update

     I have a serious jones for that car. A little out of my price range now, but a boy can dream. I love the scale of it, the slightly idiosyncratic dimensions which take the eye a few looks to adjust to and then which seem so right. I believe the car will look as enticing 30 years from now as it does today. 

    A great color combo in that picture, too.

    Re: SLS update

    cool, so Mercedes is giving away SLS together with a DHL collector's box...now, that's what I call marketing....


    Re: SLS update

    nah, am afraid i wont be able to neither see nor keep the box....

    Re: SLS update

    I've seen the car in the flesh - it is very impressive - the photos just don't do it justice.

    I first saw it in Vienna being driven on the street. I also saw it in the MB Museum in Stuttgart and also at a MB dealership in Knokke in Belgium.

    It's a car that really grows on you. You are going to absolutely love this car! The sound it makes is truly intoxicating  It sounds like a WW2 Spitfire!!

    I am so excited for you Smiley

    I have a great mental image of a typical DHL courier ringing your doorbell with that cargo box under his arm and asking for a signature. Smiley

    Enjoy!  Smiley

     I think the special one is a matte silver. imo the best of all the mattes offered by any manufecturer at the moment.

    @Sherif:  I hope you enjoy the car a lot once you get it, needles to say you must post a lot of pics Smiley Just recently I saw a red one from a distance in the streets and it looked great. Sadly yesterday I saw one at the parking lot of a friends house but it had a full cover on, I could only tell it was an SLS by the shape.


    Re: SLS update

    @Enmanuel......or a Viper

     

    @fritz.....yeah when dealer said it would ship DHL i asked if they will deflate it to fit a parcel, only upon checking i found out on the net.

    it's certainly to do with f1 ties. sls being safetycar and DHL logistics sponsor.

    in all honesty, i could not care less how it gets here as long as no  damage is done in transport.

    No, it is AMG Imola Grey Metallic. My fav color for SLS.


    Re: SLS update

    yup, above colour is imola grey.

    i did consider it....but i prefer white with red interior anyway and i found the price of imola grey just downright silly.

    Re: SLS update

    @Kreso Thanks, it's a very nice color.


    @intouch  White looks amazing on it!! Also, I think white costs more than the Imola Gray..


    Re: SLS update

    At least on the pictures,there's a slight hint of brown in Imola Grey,which i dont like

    But when SLS was still in camo-ed i was thinking how I'd like mine in gunmettal grey

    10k euro for special AMG paint is a bit too much

    Sherif,

    According to my price list prices for AMG Imola Grey and Designo Mystic White(which you ordered) is the same.

    AMG Alubeam Silver has that crazy 10K € upcharge.

    Kerso,

    According to the one i've got and MB-Germany site, Mystic White costs almost double the price of Imola Grey.

    Thanks for the correction. You are right.
     


    Re: SLS update

    sorry guys...it's the alubeam that is 11.900 euro (which i was referring to, not imola)

    designo mystic white is 4.165 euro
