    It's pretty sad when for maintenance reasons, you're glad you bought a Lotus, instead of a Mercedes. Ed will pay $5000 more in repairs on his SLR McLaren than I paid for my Lotus Exige. In 4 years I've spent right at $6000 on repairs, including a new transaxle, tires, coilovers, suspension rebuild, HID / LED headlights, etc. And I've put a shit-ton more mileage on mine. (It has 98K miles). Admittedly, I've done all the work myself, so there's very little labor cost in that $6000. Still, most mechanical parts for the Lotus are ridiculously cheap. The SLR is an incredible car, but for me, maintenance costs on consumables alone would take the fun out of ownership, and the fear of a major failure would make me scared to drive it. I don't see how anyone worth less than $10M can justify owning one, as there are plenty of less costly alternatives with a similar fun factor.

    Well SLR dealers and garages really take the pi$$.1200$ for a brake flush and 2500$ for one strut, which will probably cost less than 100$ to make produce. The prices are disgusting.

      it's a limited production model that already costs more than it did new. Of course the repairs will be extremely expensive because everything has to be built by Mercedes/McLaren the moment you order. It's not an E class where you can get parts from junkyard for 30-50 dollars.

You would expect a 60 year old mom of 5s toochie to look like that not a thin and fit girl in their mid 20s... If I was a man and a girl opened her legs and that is what I seen I would run, mines as pretty now as it was when I was a 18yo virgin and I've had two babies. When I open my thighs the sunshines and angles sign.

    I actually have some history with that car. Paris pulled out of a parking lot in Hollywood, right into the middle of an intersection. She did not have the right of way and everyone, including me had to slam on our breaks. I was PO'd and laid on my horn. The window went down and the skinniest girl I've ever seen all but climbed out the window screaming and flipping me the bird. Whoever she was with pulled her back in and after a few failed attempts she was able to get her car moving and out of the intersection.
