Buying first Benz: early 1990s 300SL

I have never owned a Mercedes before and am interested in buying an early 1990s 300/320SL roadster. I should be grateful for any advice anyone can give to the Merc novice concerning buying this car. I know it's only small beer but£8,000 is about my limit. Thanks.

Do a search on pre-purchase inspections (ppi). You should also check out the specific forum for the model you are looking at (R129?)
