1995 SL600 Owner's Manual

Hi, I'm new to this part of the forum.

I bought a '95 600SL with Pano roof in good condition but unfortunately no user manual. I want to know all the features of this car, do's and don't's. Can anybody help. Also is there an owners club in South Africa. I also have a 280GE and the support for that vehicle is excellant.

Thanks for any help and advice

Rudi

Hi RedLiner

I accept the rapping over the fingers, I also understand the reason for it.

Fact is, I just bought this car in Cape Town, halfway to Johannesburg I had to overnight on a game lodge. I was worried about the adjustable suspension on a gravel road and having only cellphone access to the internet, I tried a shortcut to view a manual.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Rudi

PS. This morning I did eventually download a manual and am even more impressed with my purchase.

Hi Rudi and welcome to the forum. It wasn't a knuckle rap just a gentle hint

I'm glad you managed to find and download your manual. In that same sticky as the manual downloads is a thread all about your ADS system, hopefully yours will be trouble free.

We have some other R129 members from SA, maybe they can steer you onto the owners clubs.

Rudi,

FYI, the R129 V12 SL was manufactured from 1992-2001, 1993-2002 in the US.

In 1992 it was known as a 600SL. From 1993-2001 it was an SL600.

You have a R129.076 chassis and a M120.981 engine.
