Hi Group,
I'm Jody and have a 1996 SL320 with just shy of 40,000 miles on the clock. I also have a 1989 190E 2.6 wih 140,000 miles. Both have been great cars- I've owned the W201 since 1992 when it had approx 34k and it's been fine - yes much maintenance but what else is new? The SL has been in the household for the past 3 years and has been just fine, only repairs thus far include the soft top control unit and two of the hydrolic fluid cylinders for the soft and hardtop windshield attachment points. I have found that if regular maintenance is followed these can be great cars. I have posted another request that asking for assistance with decoding the VIN for the SL. Many thanks in advance.


*any suggestions for a very good body / paint shop in the Fort Myers to Sarasota Florida areas?
