Hello! New Member in UK - R129 SL280


We bought an SL280 for my wife to drive a few months ago.

It got launched straight into some quite big mileage, a 1000 mile trip to a family event and then a 2500 mile trip to venice.

Its a lovely car, very pleased, couple of things to sort out including a leaking hard top...which is kind of desperate.

I do wish we'd bought a 500, but the 280 is fine.
