    Rattles in R231 SL AMG

    Hi All, Just thought I would post some of my findings as it may be helpful to any other SL owners. I recently got an 2016 SL63 having had a 2002 SL55 before. My SL55 which I have owned for many years had no rattles once I had diagnosed the early creaks as needing some rubber lubricant. The ride...

    C63 Edition 125 impressions

    W220 S500 fuel consumption

    Wonder what other W220 S500's get on a motorway cruise. I am getting around 28mpg with cruise control (Distronic actually) on. Car is 11 years old but has been well maintained. I think that is pretty reasonable. Is this good, bad or average?
