try selling it on the porsche board, some of the guys there may be interested.

I think you're making a mistake though. The SL55 is a piece of crap. We've already had two that were bought back by Mercedes.

Ya I'm a bit on the fence about it, heard some horror stories. Haven't had any problems with the e55 though. I really like the way the SL drives.
have you looked at the SL600? People seem to have had better luck with those. The SL is my mom's car. We are now on our 3rd and are back to an SL500. It has been perfect so far. The AMG cars seem to be underengineered for the power they put in them. In particular with the SL you can literally feel the engine pulling the entire car apart. By 1000 miles the thing rattles like it is held together by string, especially the top.

EDIT: my neighbor had the same problems with his wife's SL55 and now has an SL600 that has been problem free.
