New Merc SL500 1995 owner

Hi Folks

I live in South Africa where the weather is nice and warm and sunny for most of the year. A haven for an SL enthusiast. I have never owned a Merc before let alone a SL500 which in the last month I have owned it has proven to be more than I expected of it in terms of sheer pleasure.

The car has a genuine 86,500 k's (54,000 miles)on the clock since new and was owned previously by a careful lady owner. She obviously misjudged how long the bonnet is on a few occasions and there was a bit of minor damage to the front bumper at some stage which has been repaired.

It is missing the draft excluder and cover which is held in by three straps in the boot, but apart from that everything is in place and in good working order.

Im sure I will have many years of pleasure in the future and look forward to meeting other owners of this beautiful classic.

regards to all

Dave
