Hi,<br> Recently found a 1985 500SL. Are all 107 500sl's grey market cars? The car has 120K, what should I look for in the pre-purchase inspection? The guy is asking $5500 is this too good to be true? When should the timing chain be replaced on these cars?<br> <br> Thanks<br> M. Sohaib Bukhari

I just purchased one (85 500SL) with 87,000 miles, but paid much more than the price your paying...dag-dog-it (7500.00)! I was told two different things about the chains (has two of em), one mechanic said to change em at 90,000 and the other said around 140,000. I'm not going to take any chances and plan to change it at 90,000.<br> Hey, if you get any info on getting a shop manual or an owners manual, how 'bout letting me know.<br> tks Rick
