    They are VERY highly recommended within this community. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Battery disconnect or not during winter storage

    R129 SL-Class
    I always fill up the tank and add Stabil. When the weather is nice and roads are clean, I take the car out for a spin to keep fluids moving. But only if the roads are dry and salt free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Battery disconnect or not during winter storage

    R129 SL-Class
    I keep the battery in the car, connected, with a battery tender plugged in. I also have a 98. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Glass Roof or Sport Package?

    R129 SL-Class
    Value wise as a whole package, neither really. I would not pay a premium for the glass roof over $500 if all other things were equal. Same goes for sport package. That said, as used parts, the roof command $2-3k sale price and a Sport Package body kit commands about $2k. Neither one is made any...
  6. Coil overs

    R129 SL-Class
    I have a 98 Sport Package and I recently rebuilt the entire suspension with the exception of springs. In hindsight, that was a mistake but oh well. I want to drop the car to fill the wheel well. I am almost sold on the H&R but wanted to see what other options there are. Hoping to keep the parts...
  7. No start problem

    R129 SL-Class
    Combustion = Air + Fuel + Spark Sounds like you took care of all the spark pieces. Verify that the spark plugs are actually firing and if they are, move onto the fuel system. Could be as easy as a clogged fuel filter or as complex as the fuel injection. I would start with testing the fuel pump...

  10. Bought A Theft Recovery SL600 - Help!

    R129 SL-Class
    Ebay. So many of these cars being parted out. Just need to buy the package deal, most likely with one key that will never be able to be duplicated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Bought A Theft Recovery SL600 - Help!

    R129 SL-Class
    OBD port should be closer to the tunnel on the driver side. There is a little flap that closes to keep it hidden. Also, you will need a new ignition, key, theft module, and possibly ecu. That is all part of the theft deterrent system and you’ll have to buy it in one swoop out of the same car...
  12. R129 Bulb Out Light - A Solution

    R129 SL-Class
    I rolled a bit of electrical tape and shoved it into the socket of the right brake light. It seems to work part time. I finally got tired of it and bought an ebay unit to experiment on and like your post states, just needs cleaner and tension. I will be installing it soon and selling a "fixed"...
  13. Strut Brace from Orange Tuning

    R129 SL-Class
    Thanks for the tips. I’m in the Chicago area and the winters do a number on the roads. The tollways are great. The rest leave a lot to be desired. Luckily I am in the burbs and my office is about 25 miles away down back country roads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Strut Brace from Orange Tuning

    R129 SL-Class
    I thought about the B6 shocks when rebuilding the suspension but decided to stick with the 4s. In retrospect I should have done spring then. Oh well. I stuck with the 4s because I wanted to maintain a smooth ride. The roads here suck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Strut Brace from Orange Tuning

    R129 SL-Class
    Did you notice any difference? Or is mainly placebo effect? I’ll be adding H&R sport springs and #3/1 shims too at some point soon. I know it’s not gonna be a sports car in terms of handling and I don’t expect that at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Strut Brace from Orange Tuning

    R129 SL-Class
    Has not arrived yet. Just placed the order today. I will post once I get it and install. As for placebo effect, we will see. I am not holding my breath for any earth shattering effects, but I am hoping that it gets a tad tighter.
  17. Strut Brace from Orange Tuning

    R129 SL-Class
    Decided to pull the trigger on a strut bar from Orange Tuning. Even after rebuilding the entire suspension I still get some body flex and wandering on acceleration. Hoping this helps a bit. The roads here in northern Illinois are crap so I don’t expect a ton of difference but every little bit...

    Bummer. I’m sorry. It might be the micro switch in the door but they did stop using them. I just can’t remember the year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    R129 SL-Class
    The window is an easy fix. Roll both all the way down and hold button down for 5 seconds after they hit bottom. Then roll up and hold button for 5 seconds once they reach the top. Rinse/repeat 3 times. They just need to be reset. Congrats on the car.
