Vehicle History

Remarks

4 Previous owners. I have owned the car for 6 years now, having purchased it from the respected SL Shop in the Midlands. The car actually has quite a bit of documented history, certainly the first 10-15 years, showing mainly main dealer history..then the book was full.  Since I have owned it, it has been maintained by a Mercedes Master Technician.
