Smile HI from Bulgaria - Advice needed

HI All,

I have been a petrol head all my life and have raced for many years in the UK.

Got into Benz when I got my first 1998 ML320 5 years ago. Only this week, I have parted with it for a beautiful 2001 SL500 with 24,000 km from new. My wife drives a an ML270 CDI.

Being in Bulgaria, most of the used cars sold here are imported from Italy (which is the case with my SL) and Germany which brings me to my problem.

The manuals for the car are in Italian and the computer display on the dash is in German.

Being a Brit, I do not understand either of these languages so I am having some problems understanding the functions of the car.

So my questions are: Does anyone have a spare owner's manual for the SL in English which I could purchase?

Would it be possible to get a scan of the pages showing what the functions are of the buttons around the gear stick?

I have figured out most of them, but there is a "W/S" button which I have no idea what to do with.

Is it possible to change the language on the dashboard display?

Thank you in advance for your help.
