CCA Condition Report
New Mohair roof fitted in 2013 ( receipted ). Hard top accompanies the car too. Arches could do with restoring (common problem on this model) a couple of rust blemishes on o/s wing too.
Regularly serviced by a Mercedes Master Technician. Could probably do with detailing & minor cosmetic painting if you wanted it to present in pristine condition.
Works/shifts beautifully, never has an issue.
Car has cruise control & ABS.
No known electrical issues..that said the clock on dash doesnt work...but its right twice a day ;-)
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.
