450 and 560 SL's

I'm looking for either of these models. What model years are preferable or what model years should I avoid? Give me reasons too please.

The roadsters you are considering are R107 chassis. If you scroll down the site, you will see a forum that is for this chassis, and most of the people who visit that site own some version of this chassis. There is probably a "stickie" at the top of the forum that is a buying guide.

I am sure there are versions of the R107 that are preferable to others. I own an R129 SL500, and there are model years in the 12-year run of that chassis that are considered preferable. I imagine the R107 is the same.

I doubt that anyone is going to take the time to write you the several hundred or several thousand words it would take to reply to your query. It's too broad a question. Snoop around that forum and narrow your choice to either a 450 or 560 and perhaps a range of MYs, then ask a more specific question. There is also a 350 version of that chassis in a few model years.

Good luck.
