Hello, I'm new.
I've had my shiny black '94 500SL for a couple of years and it's really been growing on me. I put seat belts in the back for the kids, so now it's kind of a 4seater.
For a better look (in my oppinion) I put on wheels from a 2002 SL and clear corner lights on the front. I've put a few thousand into the car here & there.
The odometer is going on 150,000 miles and recently the reverse gear started to delay engaging, so I had a $400 service done to it. Guess what? It's working fine now. But I'm afraid the transmission will still need that $4,500 rebuild fairly soon. That made me think of getting another car but I can't find one I like as much as the SL. Weird huh?
I guess I'll just bite the bullet & keep putting money into it. The convertible top needs a new back window cause it's fogged. I wish I could replace the plastic window with a glass window.
