You need to explain to them that you have allowed for the repair in the purchase price. Your list price is very fair considering what needs to be done.

A old time blink code reader will tell you what the problem is with the SRS light. Could be a number of things. On mine it turned out to be the control unit behind the climate control unit. Got a used one on e-bay for $75 and all was well. It was a relatively easy fix.

An independent mechanic might have a used one laying around, do you have one you go to?

Well I just bought a 560sl just over a month ago. Mine is a 1987 560sl. Artic white with navy interior. It's been pampered and looks like it. It's not mint but it's about a 8.5 or 9 out of ten. 53,000 original miles on it. Everything works and not a spec of rust. I paid $11,000 for it.

I've looked at a ton of SL's over the last year and I think $6k is a fair price for your car.
