1993 SL600 Concerns

Hello,

I'm new to the forum so please dont burn me if i ask a question that is answered in a thread ive had a hard time finding what i need. Ive been considering purchasing a 93 SL600 that is for offered for sale by the grandfather of one of my friends. He purchased the car 10 years ago and has only driven it a handfull of times. It has 31,000 miles on it and cosmetically is flawless but it has some issues. First is it simply doesnt run right idles fine but smells rich and has very little power. Second the ADS light is on. I know the car has had little done to it wiring harness etc. but i think i can buy it for around 7k I've heard finnicky is an understatement with these vehicles but ive always wanted it. anyone have any suggetions for what it is worth and what im getting into service wise? any help is greatly appreciated!

Check with the SL600 community.

It's a good price, but there's a lot more than the price to consider.
The V12 puts it into a more expensive repair and parts category.

It really helps to get the model right. There's no such thing as a 93 SL600. But whatever it is, assuming you're close on the description, it can easily be a money pit. Even with 31k miles it can be a major money pit. Those are weak troubled cars that have no hope of ever being collectible.
