    I have a 1987 560SL and my power antenna always goes up halfway whenever I start my car. I have good radio signal just fine when I put the antenna down, so is there a way to make it so the antenna doesn’t automatically go up when I start the car? Not a major issue but I am curious so I don’t...

  12. R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Can anyone provide advice on purchasing a 560SL? I've done some research and I know things to look out for (timing chain, rust on bottom, etc) but it seems listing prices online fluctuate from $13,000 to $40,000. I'd be okay with 80k-140k miles on it, but not sure if I'm being practical...
