Want 2 B new/used MB ownerBUT need serious help please !

My name is Scott and I have been a BMW fanatic for a long time. Presently I own a pristine 1988 BMW M6 with 52000 miles on it. Cinnabar red with Natur interior. Last year my wife of 27 years got breast cancer and I am about to but her a 2007 SL550 But.................................

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I work for a Toyota dealership and we just took in an excellent condition 2007 Pearl White - 42412 mile SL 550. Non smoker 2nd owner trade in that he purchased from Mercedes Benz of Cool Springs TN. He purchased it as a Certified Pre Owned and then purchased the Mercedes Extended Warranty coverage.

Please help with these questions as this would be my 1st Mercedes and I am worried about several possible issues.

I can purchase the car for 36200.00 which seems to be a good price IS IT ?

Never been in an accident - no paint work - leather is a 9.2 on a 10 scale.

Paint is a 9.0 on a 10 scale.

Has the clear front bra on it which has kind of " yellowed " SHOULD IT BE REMOVED ?

The wheels have a " turbine " look to them and some minor " curb rash " which I can have fixed by our wheel refinisher vendor but I also want the wheels POLISHED who and where can I send them to be brought back to a new - shiny - polished look.

Is the car reliable ? What is going to break ? How long is the convertable top mechanism good for ? What maintenence is required for the convertable top mechanism ?

Is the Mercedes extended warranty transferable and if so how much time would be left on it from the original purchase date ?

The car is in awesome shape - Continental high performance tires - and so on BUT I do not wan to buy a headache and dont have the time or money to be bothered by things happenning with the convertable roof and mechanism.

Need advice - please.

Welcome to Benzworld, I see you have posted on the 230 forum, I am sure you will get answers there.
