How many factory keys? Wheel part number?

Hi everyone!

I know the early W140s had many keys and extra keys.

How many keys would have come standard with a 97 SL500?
The 2 sliding remote plus a simple valet? Does the number vary (US x Euro market)?

These wheels came with the 98-02 amg pack, does anyone know the exact part number front and rear? Thank You!

MercedesTheBest, thank you very much, do you have a pic of those keys? I can't find an image of the non-flip ones.

About the wheels this website seems very complete:

But they have dif codes, not the factory part number i guess

0-01 SL500/SL600 H 65228 18x8.5 AMG Soft 5 Spoke 1294011702 129 CH SILVER MCD LIP FRONT
00-01 SL500/SL600 H 65229 18x9.5 AMG Soft 5 Spoke 1294011802 129 CH SILVER, MCD LIP REAR
Yeah, that wheel design is also beautiful, i think the bolted is the SL73 style.

Sadly I am in Brazil and the 129 is very very rare here cuz at the time you could buy 3 middle-class homes for the price of one SL (in the 90s US$250,000 after taxes), so specially after the SLK and the CLK cabrio came out in 97/98 (US$100-150,000 after taxes) not too many crazy MB buyers went for the SL... maybe 98-2002 you`d find less than 10 cars for a country of 200mil that is the 6th largest economy in the world, rare indeed.

91-97: I don`t think you have more than 200 SLs here, i can assure you none of them had this wheel.

About the keys they could have cut costs on the phase II after 95/96, i guess they did it to the W140 too thats why I asked. I`ll try to get the 97 manual. Thank you!!!
Well the only manual I could find is a 2000, page 28, down to 3 keys, 2 flip and a valet.

So 95-99 still a mistery.

Brazil has a very closed market regarding consumer products, specially cars, we produce 3mil vehicles year, apparently we are 4th largest car market, imports are taxed at 100-150%. But even civic and corollas made here cost US$45,000 and are consired successful and educated people's car.

If you try to educate anyone about the intl car market and explain that civics/corollas are teenage cars abroad they'll just say you are spoiled and a dreamer... I live in a car nightmare!

129 here have asking price of US$35,000 upwards, no matter the condition engine, miles etc...

Any convertible 107, 170 and etc will be US$25,000+ including 95 Mustangs, Sebrings, 3ers...
