I looked at two SL600s before settling on the one I've enjoyed for the last 7 years.
The 2 prior cars where in absolutely deplorable condition. Previous owners/users had even put cigarette butts out on the leather dash and the general condition of the interiors and exteriors made me wonder how someone who spent so much money on such a beautiful car, could treat it with such callous carelessness.
Bravo for reconditioning (rescuing really) such a pretty SL.
It's an excellent forum for information on detailing. I just happened upon it earlier this year when googling for info on machine polishing after I got my SL320 in it's slightly scratchy 10 year old designo mystic blue.
