I am a big fan of the slightly older Mercedes. I have driven two different 1990 420SEL's for the past 18 years and love them. Last month I hit a deer with my latest one after spending $3000.+ on the suspension 3 weeks before. i had hoped to keep it another 5+ years. But, grill, radiator, hood and one head lamp assembly has totally demotivated me.
Today I saw someone parking an 2000 SL500 roadster on their front lawn with a For Sale sign on the windshield, so I had to stop. Was his wife's car, only used in the summer (we live in New England) and 53,000 miles. Needs front brakes and probably rotors and the fan does not blow. But, otherwise it looks and sounds like new. He was asking $13,000. but after some discussion, he took $10,000. Hoping it works out to be a good decision.
I will probably be looking for some advice in the future, my first SL!
