    My dads friend convinced me to do it. I did get the most reliable. He would buy S600's same years, so same drive train. He would find cheap 100k ones. He is like madden and wont fly. He travels the auction circiut. So he puts between 270k and 300k on them and then dumps them for 5.


    He told me I would love the power. He said even in the big S, that mustangs on the highway are a joke. Once it gets moving it is as fast as mine. Just way bigger.

    "The loss the first buyers took on these cars is sickening and gives the car a stigma of not being that great. Well I am here to tell you that stigma is dead wrong. If there ever was a free lunch on a car, the SL600 is as close as I have found. Reliability, well its the most reliable V12 car ever, and even more reliable than some very simple cars that are considered reliable. It makes the BMW V12 look like a joke in reliability and then a cartoon on power. I hate to say that as I am a big BMW 850 fan. The BMW 12 is not even in the same solar system as this car. What is even better than this cars reliability is its endurance ability. These V12s were built to stand on in the true German autobahn manner. The new and smaller single cam turbo V12 in the 03 cars and newer are popping like a bag of microwave corn when put to the test. They are not the same. That motor needs two turbo chargers to do what this one does close without them and without the grief! As far as life, you can expect 350K miles out of the 6.0 V12. What else can do that short of a semi truck engine? The 96-99 S600 sedan will show you that too."
