Spent an hour or so reading and this looks like a great place to learn.
I've owned a few benz since 1977, presently own a 1980
450 sel and just purchased a 1990 500 sl for my wife and I as a fun summer car.
I would like to know where the skeletons are buried
for this model. Carfax report was clear, local mb dealer assigned a "service adviser'who speaks mombo jombo if and when you can get a return call after a few voice mails.
I have previously spent a lot of time under the hood of:
1 st car 1977 300 d
2 nd car 1984 190 d
3 rd car 1980 450 sel
4 th car 1980 450 sl
5 th car 1985 380 se
6 th car 1990 500 sl
Too old to get on the creeper any more but still willing to learn
Thanks for any and all responses.

welcome to benzworld,... sorry but your cars are out of my field (midsized mercs with 6's). I'm sure someone will be along shortly to help you out.
