Mercedes.. Too Expensive

You can see a few 2009 SL Coupes on the road these days, ranging from the 280 to the 500. I didn’t see too many, just a few, so I was wondering what they priced that vehicle in Kuwait.

SL280 – 24’000 KD
SL350 – 26’000 KD
SL500 – 34’000 KD

That is probably the most ridiculously priced vehicle I have seen yet. I didn’t think that they would be so damn expensive, different brands sell super cars at the price of the SL500. I think its a tad over priced and they need to review it, I doubt the dealership is providing such high services to justify these prices. And these are the base prices with limited options, with all the different options it can go even higher. I bet they will be dropping the prices with the market in this situation.

    Mercedes was always overpriced. I dont think its something new.
    Nevertheless, I hate Mercedes, except the black edition..

    Stay with your M6 mate…

    They did drop their prices! I don’t know about the SL but I got a limited edition 2009 coupe from them recently and it was very well priced. Check with the dealers, you’d be surprised.

  3. not only is the 350 overpriced. it under performs.

  4. does the price include built in satnav and leather seats?

    SL is totally not worth it, I can get a better car with less price than that.

    with 34k i would go for a Cayenne Turbo or Targa 4S instead of a mercedes

  7. jajaja

    actually, i would go with a BMW M5

  8. Why not get a CLS 63AMG ? I guess that it’s worth every penny ? unless that you are looking for a convertable ?

    for those bashing MB , Mercedes-Benz is the Best car out there Period !! all other care makers just wait to see what MB has to offer and basically COPY their technology.. Just remember that MB invented the ABS, ABC, Break assist, rool over bars, Keyless Go.. and the list goes on… !!
