I WAS disappointed to not find editor Butlerís long-term review on the Mercedes SL400 in the May issue. As a chap who has just turned 70, Iím always interested in vehicles that I can alight from with some dignity Ė plus one does need to dream!

So editor Butler, in order to appease this old dreamer and perhaps others out there, where is your review?

As you will no doubt have noticed, the SLís keys have been prised from my grasp. My report last month (June) was the final update. Perhaps you could plead this case to the Mercedes press department.

I would willingly perform this vital public service for a few more months Ė Ed
