Newbie SL500 Owner
Hello, I'm the proud new owner of a 1993 Mercedes 500 SL based in the UK. I always fancied one of these and have owned other (newer) Mercedes models in the past. It's an amazing bit of kit - very solid with OK handling and brakes but with comfort and cruising in mind.
For a 17 year old car with 110k miles on the clock, it looks pretty good. It has a small oil leak which I need to investigate, very tired looking front seats which I will be getting refurbished in due course and the original hood which has a couple of minor holes and cracked rear windows (I will be tackling repairs to the roof myself as I'm not keen on forking-out Â£1000's on a new roof just yet. All fixable stuff I hope. The car runs like a dream other than that and I hope to run it as a useable classic for many years to come.
No doubt you will be seeing some of my posts going forward!
