This is THE nicest 2004 SL600 AMG Sport to go on ebay. It's a great car with a fantastic service history. which is THE most important thing when shopping for a 600-series Mercedes. It has been fully inspected and serviced. and is 100% ready to go. It is in great cosmetic condition inside and out. and drives like a dream to 150MPH and beyond. At the BIN price this car comes with a TON of things included. so please read on to find out more. This SL600 was serviced on a cost-no-object basis at authorized Mercedes dealers since it was delivered new in 2004 all the way into 2016! It just received a full inspection and got everything it needed. and now needs nothing but a new owner…. you! This SL600 is in excellent condition from the 18” AMG sport wheels with brand new tires. to the new wiper blades. to its original body panels and clean carfax. This car has a great service history with over $10K spent at Mercedes in the last 15K miles! Everything works. and it's loaded with equipment. No stories. so please read on to find out more.

-- Here she is in all her glory --

Please let me stop you now if you are looking for an inexpensive or average SL600 like most of them for sale. This is not that car. You do NOT want to shop for an SL600 based on the lowest price. trust me. There are only two types of SL600's; ones that have already HAD repairs/maintenance done. and ones that are GOING to need  repairs/maintenance done. Trust me when I say you want the car that's already had all the work done. like this one. so you can take advantage of a car that needs nothing because the owner before you already spent all the money! This is a car only for a person that wants the best. and that can appreciate this car's condition and details below. Please understand. with these cars. you get what you pay for. I paid top-dollar to get this car. because it beat every other SL600 I looked at for options. cosmetics. and mechanicals. There are beater SL's. nice SL's. and mint SL's. This one is mint…. period.

Here's the deal:

-- This is a 2004 SL600 in 744 brilliant silver metallic over charcoal leather interior. with matching charcoal carpets and alcantara headliner. This SL600 has only 35. xx original miles. looks like a million bucks. and drives like a million bucks. This car was LOVED. and has NEVER had any bodywork to its metal body panels. In fact. there are hardly any dings. scuffs. or scratches anywhere…it's in fantastic shape. --

-- Exterior 9. 85 out of 10 (I'm finicky) - Fantastic overall condition paint. body. glass. and trim. No dings. No dents. Only a few tiny touched-up scratches. This car looks amazing. with a deep shine to the metallic paint that's like looking into an endless mirror. This car looks great even under fluorescent light in a garage. Imagine getting a 12 year old with no swirl marks or spider webs in the paint…. amazing! --

-- The lower side-body moldings are in great shape. The chrome. rubber. glass. and trim are all excellent and original. No oxidation. fade. wear. rust. etc. Look at the body panels. they are laser straight. --

-- Here are some more shots with the hard-top in place. Gorgeous! --

-- You'll note that most people do not take photos of the power top mechanism that resides UNDER the bonnet. It's MINT! --

-- This car's retractable hardtop is in excellent condition. No delamination to the window. no tears or pulls or fade to the headliner. the understructure is perfect and new like it should be. --

-- Look how sweet this car is with the soft top or the top down…. ready to cruise. --

-- You ready for its service history? All the things that need attention on a 12 year old SL have been done already. Don't feel like dealing with the typical 24 spark plugs. both coil packs. and the voltage regulator that these cars usually need at this age? They've all been replaced for $3900 at the Benz dealer. Rack and pinion steering rack with the usual small oil leak that costs $2600 to repair? Replaced at the Benz dealer.  Plastic shroud and cooling fan for radiator after 12 years on the road and costs $1500 to replace? Done. ABC strut leaking? Done. Hydraulic convertible top pump for $2200? Done. Coolant pump? Done. Wiper blades. Mobil 1 oil changes. battery. etc etc etc? Done done done! This car is serviced to within an inch of its life. in both routine maintenance and repairs. There is NOTHING to do except drive. Take any other SL600. even for $5K less than this car. and within a year you'll spend that $5K savings and much more for things that have not been done yet. Not on this car! There's nothing to do except change oil and put in gas for YEARS. THAT is why you buy this car. and why it's better than any other SL600 for sale anywhere. Show me another car you're looking at that has open-checkbook repairs and maintenance at the Benz dealer worth almost $15K in the last 20K miles. You won't find one. --

-- This SL600 is loaded. with an original MSRP of over $135K! Options include AMG sport package. panoramic roof. parktronic. keyless go. heated/cooled/massage seats. COMAND navigation. bi-xenon headlights. and much more. Wow! --

-- There's even a hidden and fully integrated K40 front and rear radar/laser detection system! –

-- The 18” authentic AMG wheels are in great shape with only a few very minor marks. The tires are Michelin Pilot Sports with about 50% tread remaining. but at the BIN price I will include a brand new set of staggered 18” performance tires at 255/40/18 up front and 285/35/18 in the rear. with 100% tread remaining. This SL600 also has a fresh alignment and Hunter Roadforce balancing of all four tires. It goes arrow-straight down the road at high speed with no shimmy. pull. or anything else. --

--  Power top operation is perfect of course. --

-- Interior 9. 8 out of 10 - The interior overall including all seating and door leather. seat padding. dash. console. wood. and carpets are in great original condition. No dash cracks. carpet rips. zero wear of any kind on the leather. Everything looks and feels great. This is not some sun-faded southern SL interior. this car was garaged and it shows. No detailing yet either. this is just after a wash and a vacuum. --

-- The door panels and wood trim are also in great shape. like the rest of the car. --

-- Even the trunk and spare are mint. and the convenience tile feature for the retracted top works perfectly. --

-- Electrical 10 out of 10 - All lights. switches. radio. windows. wipers. seat motors/memory/pulse. top motors. and power mirrors work perfectly. Vacuum lock system. COMAND navigation. remote key. xenon/exterior/interior lights all operating as they should. --

-- The HVAC system is fast to respond. and operates perfectly with scalding hot heat and ice-cold A/C. Seat heaters and A/C all working properly. –

-- Mechanical 10 out of 10 - Engine starts. idles. runs. and revs to redline in every gear smooth and strong. Transmission is smooth yet very aggressive. and downshifts eagerly. No abrupt engagement. just silky smooth shifts. She runs at high speed with no vibrations or noises. There are no leaks. NONE. --

-- This SL600 has passed THREE inspections with flying colors. A pre-purchase overall inspection for cosmetics. and post-purchase for body/frame/mechanical/electrical. and a MB specialist shop inspection as well. It's now perfect and ready to roll. --

-- Engine is strong and VERY eager to run. transmission smooth and ready to drop down two gears at your command to rocket you past slower traffic. Brakes are solid and pedal feel is firm. ABC suspension is tight like new. no worn tie rod ends. ball joints. struts. or anything else. Steering nicely weighted with no play in the box. ZERO leaks or noises. This car drives and handles like new. --

-- This SL600 comes with books. mats. tools. clean Carfax. and its complete MB warranty and service history from 2004 to today. This car was LOVED.  --

-- This SL600 does not have any top leaks. no rubber rot. no oil leaks. no lukewarm A/C. NOTHING. Everything is in fantastic shape. and at 35K miles with all the service done. it's not even close to broken in yet! --

-- At the BIN price. I will provide the following: the new 18” staggered tires mentioned above. New wiper blades. Fresh Mobil 1 oil change. A full $200 detailing including engine bay. carpet shampoo. leather conditioning. orbital polishing. etc. I'll also supply Toughguard protectant for the paint. which you have to see to believe. It will bead water. seal. and UV protect the paint for FIVE YEARS. GUARANTEED. no future waxings necessary. I know it sounds like a B. S. late-night TV claim. but it's not; dealers charge $695 and up for this stuff. and it really works. I will also include new MB OEM floormats and Mercedes OEM touch-up paint. That's close to $2000 in value! --

-- Nits: Far below average wear for a 2004 car with 35K miles. No problems of any kind. NONE! ZERO! ZIP! The car is as nice as you will ever see for a 2004 SL600. --

-- I have good feedback. and have recently sold dozens of 600-series MB's that their new owners are thrilled with. They and others have offered to act as references to verify that I am honest in my descriptions of the cars I sell. and you are welcome to contact them. --
