Question New sl500 owner has questions

I just purchased my first Mercedes, a 1995 sl 500 with 100,000 miles on it. Never driven in snow, it has no rust. Everything mechanical works and it has only had 2 owners before me.

I'm a pretty good mechanic and do most of my own repairs on my other cars and trucks but they are somewhat less complicated, ford F 150s and Saturns.

So, tell me what I need to know to keep it in top shape. And what particular repair manual do you suggest I get? Thanks!

I suggest you ask your questions in the R129 forum.
