Hi,
I am thinking about purchasing a 2 seat roadster, options are '03SLK 320, '03BMW Z4 or '98-'99 sl500. As far as the SL500 goes, is the 113 ('98) motor any more reliable than the 119 ('99), or does one feel stronger than the other? How about the construction of the R129, is it rattle and flex free? What are some areas that have problems and what should I be looking for?
I know that the SL is quite a different car than the other two that I mentioned, I feel that it more substantial, powerful and just as fast. Do you agree? Any advice is sincerely appreciated.
TIA
PSoin

Quality and solid feel of the SL are lightyears ahead of the other considerations listed. Different car-don't know difference between the two engines in question.

I don't mean the ages of the buyers either. The SL would be what I would choose.
