86' 560SL Good year??

I'm planning to buy my first R107 soon. I've been looking at 88' and 89's but recently ran into a great 1986. It doesn't seem like there are any significant differences from 86 to 89 but I'm new at this so I thought I ask the experts.

I know the 86' was the first year with a new power train (4 speed) but I don't know if there were any issues with this in the field.

Any other issues with the 86' I should know about??

Thanks in advance for you advice,
