First Time Owner. Got screwed but still in love

Before I begin does anyone know where I could purchase a Service Manual on disk??
I purchased a beautiful 300 SL in white with palomino interior. Convertible. Bought it from one of EBAY's top car dealers. Learned my lesson. Long story. I was assured that everything was in great working condition. Everything. Well...the top didn't work, the car was bone dry of oil and water, the brakes were no good, the light switch needs to be replaced. Can't drive it at night. I did bring it back to the dealer and he said he would fix everything. After having the car for one month he never once called me with an update. I was the one calling him. I got it back and everything seemed good. For a week. Things were fixed to last a week I guess because all those issues came back. Anyway, the engine is amazing and I will slowly put her back together. I absolutely love this car and I am so proud to own it. I can't wait to wake up every day and see it. Thank you.
