Nice to find such a specialized R129 forum here! Just wondering if I can refer to your expert opinion on repair estimate of a R129...I am very limited on knowledge of mechanics
Recently I am tempted by a 1995 SL320, thinking of driving it as a weekend car:
-160k miles, soft top, exterior/interior in good shape;
- Price is $5k, seems right to me;
- Both BAS/ESP and ABS warning lights on when engine started;
- Power break is fine; power train normal;
Wondering how much will it cost to fix the BAS/ESP & ABS, will it be costly?
Also, is it worthwhile to keep this car just for recreation, will the maintenance cost be high? The R129 looks like a dream...so tempted...so tempted........
Thank you very much!
