We have puchased a SL500 2001 What an amazing car it is, but because of its age and mileage I do have a few glitches to solve. So i am looking forward to reading and posting threads to get the car back in full working order without financially crippling ourselves. Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge. I am a keen DIY car enthusiast we having just sold our Alfa 156 for the Merc and recently I have rebuilt my Landrover Discovery's V8 3.9 engine and done various modifications, I have also restored our Triumph Spitfire.
Kind regards Andrew

Welcome to the group! A beautiful car, to be sure. I'm going to guess that it will be more reliable than either the alpha or the Land Rover with proper care and as you know is just such an iconic car. Have fun and enjoy your first Mercedes (I have owned 6).

Hey Andrew. Congrats on your purchase. My E55 is my first Benz also. So far I really like this thing. MB's are excellent cars. Safe, reliable, comfortable and (obviously ) very well built.
So far, as far as I can tell, there aren't too many special tools needed to work on them. Unlike BMW'S where you need a wall full.
Enjoy your car.
