R129 SL500 x 2 in UAE


very less costs (purchase, petrol, insurance, maintenance - list uncompleted for saving jealous feelings) compared to Europe and speed limits controlled by radar/camera everywhere and absence of salt on streets in winter persuaded me to buy a used R129 here in one of the most driest places of this planet.

Coming from Central Europe, I live and work here as electronic engineer since 2008 and have benefitted from the very valuable infos of this (and similar) forums.
This is why I even bought 2 of them - finally you do need one to get to the part shops while the other is maintained/repaired!
