Great appearance, excellent handling, acceleration good enough, and the best I can still get a set of golf clubs in the trunk with the top down!
DON"T TRY TO DRIVE IT IN THE SNOW!...learned the hard way...lol
I would recommend this car to anyone who wishes to experience a real sports car that is fun to drive and won't break the bank. Not the fastest, most powerful, but well worth the money for what it offers and what it is intended to do.

looks, Handling and exceleration
does not handle well in winter weather
very fun to drive and with an average of 27.2 MPG (so far) much less expensive to drive than my old Corvette

This car has very impressive acceleration and braking ability. The seats are body hugging, which helps when cornering aggressively. Also has a decent trunk for the size of the car.
Perfect car for those looking for an awsome driving experience. Refreshing to have a convertible that is as quiet as a standard hardtop.

Sharp looks, sharp performance, good fuel economy and open air motoring even on cool days with the airscarf.
A little pricey but still worth it.
Lots of fun, with some practicality left over

Having a previous 2003 MBZ convertible, trading it for a 2008 Roadster was a plus. Living in Anchorage, AK, having a roadster is not a choice you jump into that easily, but a good pair of studded tires, the nice stability it has and a good common-sense driver makes a perfect combination. The special edition came with several pluses, apart from the AMG package. The heated seats and scarfs are perfect for this environment when you have the hard top down. Aceleration wise is a lot better than the previous.
I like everything on this one.
Excellent car for the very exclusive few that appreciate a fine roadster.

For those who live in the Northeast this is a death trap, forget about driving it if it snows the car cannot be controlled. Another major complaint the starter, on three separate occasions it failed and had to get it towed for service and one time they had to get the part shipped in from Germany because no one had it. I finally got fed up with it and threatened to cancel the lease because the car was a Lemon - the dealership gave us a new one but this is not a car worth your time.
Stay away from it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
