New 300SL Owner in Malaysia

Hi Guys,
I live in Malaysia and have just purchased a 91 300SL. The car was imported into Malaysia in 1993 and has been well cared for since then. It shows 33,000miles on the odometer but I am not sure that is genuine. It is showing the usual issues of age in a tropical climate with plastics hardening etc but it drives well and with some TLC will last for many happy kilometres.
This is my second Mercedes, the first being a 82 300D which I drove around Virginia USA.
Right now I am looking for a set of "original" 8 hole rims and a manual for the radio which appears to be original.

I'm thinking of buying the same car (12v) and am in KL. There's a few in the market and I saw a clean unmodified one, about 70,000 miles asking Rm90+k. The other option is a CLK230 Kompressor convertible (2001), much more modern but asking Rm130+k (only 25k km and 1 owner).

From your experience so far, do you have any tips suggestions?
