    Ehh, I never really liked the "limited edition" car thing and this is kind of along the same lines as when a manufacturer partners with a popular brand of the time. This SL500 isn't even OEM (which makes it worse). It just comes across as a weak attempt to enhance value, IMO… or at least the ones from back in the day did… like the ASC McLaren Mustang, Nautica Edition Villager mini van or the Subaru LL Bean thing. I know, I know… Ford and Eddie Bauer had huge success, but again, short of int/ext colors and Ed's name on the headrest, what else did you really get?

    I guess they're still doing it though. More recently with the John Varvatos edition Chrysler 300. You got a slight appearance package tweak, special wheel color and gauges and a clock "inspired by John Varvatos’ timepieces". *gasp!* #BallerStatus

      … but yes, ok, you don't see these kinds of doors every day.

    Return the doors to normal hinges and drive the heck out of it.
