I'd be cautious with them.
I purchased my 98 SL there, upon inspection prior to purchasing I noted a rough idle, salesman indicated it would be addressed / fixed. Upon delivery I noted the same issue, spoke with service advisor / manager, was told this issue is inherent in the this model. I thought it was BS.
Approx. a month later CE light came on & I brought to my local dealer (CT), a sensor needed to be changed to remedy CE light, I asked them to check the rough idle, they indicated the plugs needed to be changed. I saw immediate improvement!
I then approached Helms to be refunded the $ 200 for the plug change, after many months & one of the managers either left or was fired, I finally received the compensation.

Good Luck!

Not necessarily, could be lots of things. Best bet is to take it or have it towed to the dealer for a proper diagnosis before throwing parts at, or, get a new girlfriend.

what were the symptoms of it not starting? Did it crank and not catch, did it not crank at all, did it start then die, did something else happen?
