I hate to be a party Poop. But.......My last car was a 1986 Corvette C4 that I bought back in September 86'. Kept it 30 yrs . Cool car that I have outstanding memories with . But for my 50th Birthday I decided it was time to move on and bought my 2015 SLK 350 I have now. I feel extremely spoiled with all the creature comforts. To remove the Targa roof in the corvette is a torturous 1/2 hour affair. As I get older it gets worse and worse. Now I push a button and in 20 seconds I have a convertible. Its amazing. I still cant believe I own it.
Can I ask whats the big deal about standing next to your car for 20 seconds? I actually LOVE watching it work. The whole symphony of gears and technology seamlessly working together. Its beautiful. German engineering at its best. On the Highway its a hardtop. No wind noise. Beautiful shape.
I wouldn't change a thing (after I bought new wheel inserts). I love it.
