91 300SL

I currently own a 1988 560SL and seriously looking at purchase of a 91 300SL with 36k miles in awesome condition. Anything I need to be aware of for concern on this year and model other than typical issues like R129 roof hydraulics? Is there a major service interval either just passed or upcoming on this year and model?

I would verify the miles, change all the fluids if you choose to purchase it, im guessing the tires are going to need to be replaced if they are original simply due to age. I have a 1990 300sl and love it, its not the fastest car, but its great for open road cruising. the engine is stupid simple and there is a ton of room to work on anything. Best of luck!
