Hello, new owner of 98 SL500, glad to be here

I just bought a 1998 SL500 Black w/ Tan Interior. car was 2 owner, well taken care of, 102K miles, mechanically sound, great paint, no dents, Sport pkg w/ AMG monoblock wheels (no curb rash), new tires, new struts & rear shocks, a/c blows cold, no leaks, everything works (cross fingers). has both hard top & new soft top. There is an Indepedent BMW/MB service center right next door to my business, and they went through it completely. leather looks good, no tears, no stains, carpet in good shape as well. couple minor issues (driver seat needs new springs, leather on A-pillars pulling up somewhat from windshield, passenger visor mirror lid is broken off). going to replace existing headlights w/ euro H4 set-up. paid 10K.
Will post pics when I get a chance.
