Post New Member of 96 SL500

Hello my name is Alex and I own a 96 SL 500. It’s been a good car for me so far NO major problems with it. Nice ride very beautiful black exterior after a wax job and nice black interior which does get hot on the HOT summer days. And I do drive the car on regular basis as I sold my RX8. Now my SL turned into my everyday car. Oh boy can’t wait till it will get warm again, to take my hard top off and take it for a spin. My volume on the radio sometimes acts up when I try to turn down the music it goes up or vice versa If anyone knows how to fix that without replacing the unit? Let me know. Also been thinking about upgrading to 18 inch rims as I currently have 16 inch original chrome plated rims. So if anyone has any thoughts or regrets about upgrading to 18 inch rims let me know what are you pro and cons of doing that. Is there any noticeable ride comfort disadvantage? Or there is more advantage to the handling?
