The original owner actually just recently sold that car. Sold it to some Armenian dude... :dunno:

Mercedes totally screwed the original owner and shot themselves right in the foot. The guy was ready, with cash, to buy a 722 but Mercedes swore up and down that it would never come to the US. So he bought the blue SLR only to find out like a month later that Benz was releasing 24 722's to the US. Not only that, that particular SLR is the most recent version which means the struts are not adjustable. So the guy bought those wheels thinking he could lower the car on them only to find out his suspension wasn't adjustable and that older/adjustable SLR struts couldn't be fitted on it.

I think he may be done with Merc. Oh well, right Mercedes??!! Plenty more where that came from!!! Idiots. :thumbdown:
