This is THE nicest 2003 SL55 AMG to appear on ebay. It's an incredible car with a clean Carfax. and only 65K original documented miles since new. It is in mint condition inside and out. and drives like a dream to 150MPH and beyond. If you've never owned or driven an SL with 500HP. now is the time my friend. It's unreal. like piloting a fighter jet on the road. This SL55 was serviced over the years as needed at authorized MB dealers. and was just fully inspected. not once. not twice. but three times! At the BIN price it will need nothing but a new owner. It's also LOADED with factory options. unlike most SL55's out there; it has parktronic. keyless go. distronic. bi-xenons. heated/ventilated seats. and panoramic roof. This SL55 is in excellent condition from its new staggered 18” tires. to its new wiper blades. to its original paint and body panels. This car has a solid dealer service history. everything works. and its original window sticker was over $125K! 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 SL55 like most of them for sale. This is not that car. You do NOT want to shop for an SL55 based on the lowest price. trust me. 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 SL55 I looked at for options. cosmetics. and mechanicals. Then I inspected it multiple times. and will do everything needed at the BIN price to make it perfect. There are beater SL's. nice SL's. and mint SL's. This one is mint…. period.
Here's the deal:
-- This is a 2003 SL55 AMG in 040 black paint over 581 anthracite leather interior. with matching charcoal carpets and alcantara headliner. This SL55 has only 65. xx original miles. looks like a million bucks. and drives like a million bucks. This car was LOVED. and has NEVER had any paint or bodywork to its body panels. In fact. there is hardly a single ding. dent. scuff. or scratch anywhere…it's amazing! --
-- Exterior 9. 5 out of 10 (I'm finicky) - Fantastic overall condition original paint. body. glass. and trim. No dings. No dents. No scuffs. This car looks amazing. with a deep shine to the black paint that's like looking into an endless mirror. This car has been paint metered and every body panel is original and wears its original paint. There is some scuffing to the underside of the front bumper cover. but you have to be lying on the ground looking up to see it. This car looks great even under fluorescent light in a garage. Imagine getting a 14 year old with no swirl marks or spiderwebs 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. --

-- 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. --

-- This SL55 even has some aftermarket mods that are very nice. An SL63 carbon fiber decklid spoiler. a Pioneer AVIC-Z2 nav/stereo unit with satellite radio. Memphis amp in trunk. subwoofer. integrated K40 360 degree radar detector. Suntek high-end window tint. and iPod conector hidden in the front ashtray. For a deeper and throatier sound. the rear resonators and secondary cats have been deleted. This SL55 sounds AMAZING at full throttle! –
-- The 18” AMG wheels are true and in excellent overall condition. The Sumitomo tires are close to worn out. but at the BIN price I will include a set of brand-new Nokian Z rated tires all around with 100% tread remaining. mounted and balanced. This SL55 also has a fresh alignment and at the BIN will get a Hunter Roadforce balancing of all four tires. It goes arrow-straight down the road at high speed with no shimmy. pull. or anything else. --

-- 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. – they should. --
-- 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 SL55 has passed THREE inspections with flying colors. A pre-purchase overall inspection for cosmetics. and post-purchase for body/frame/mechanical/electrical. and an MB specialist shop inspection as well. --
-- 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 and ZERO leaks or noises. This car drives and handles like new. --
-- This SL55 comes with books. MB floor mats. tools. clean carfax. and its completed documented MB dealer service history. This car was LOVED. --
-- This SL55 does not have any convertible top leaks. no rubber rot. no lukewarm A/C. NOTHING. Everything is in fantastic shape. and at 65K miles. she's not even close to broken in yet! --

A second remote key. 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 MB OEM floormats and Mercedes OEM touch-up paint. That's close to $2500 in value all included at the BIN price! --
-- Nits: The underside of front bumper cover curb rash mentioned above. and some small touched-up thin scratches/rock chips. Well below average wear for a 2003 car. The car is as nice as you will ever see for a 2003 SL55. --
-- 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. --
