1994 SL500

I have an opportunity to purchase a used 1994 SL500 from a friend of mine and wanted to ask a few questions about this particular make/model before purchasing it.

As the title indicates, it's a 1994 SL500. It's got 59K miles on it. Recently both fuel pumps were replaced. The only thing that does not work is the drivers side power head rest. Other than that, she's mint. My friend is about 77 years old so he's not modified this vehicle, always brought it to the dealership for servicing/repairs. Never in a crash, always garage kept, in San Francisco, CA. The rag top is in mint condition as well. Exterior color of the car is metalic silver with dark brown interior. The rag top is brown and the hard top is metalic silver as the rest of exteror.

Big question is, is this something worth buying? My friend is asking $6,000 for it. I've never had a Mercedes before so I don't know what to expect in perforance, maintenence and operational cost and dependability. I've primarily owned American cars and over the past ten years have owned two BMWs.

If I do purchase this vehicle I"ll be on this forum quite often I'm sure. Any advice on this SL500 would be greatly appriciated. In the interim, I'll look for information about the 1994 SL500 that can be helpful to me for the decision making process.
