SL is making me fat!

I used to walk down the hill to our village each day, about 30 minutes there - and a bit more back as we're at the top of a mountain about 1,000ft above sea level.

Since buying my SL500 3 months back, I've been putting on weight because I'm walking less. I keep my walking shoes in the garage cupboard, and once I see that slick, black, gleaming piece of machinery sitting there, waiting for my bidding at the touch of a key on a sunny day, it's hard to resist!

Never had that problem with any other car, even my 350SL. Or is it my willpower!
