I have a 1998 V6 SL320, which suddenly drops to firing on what feels like three cylinders only. Cutting the engine off, then restarting immediately, always cures the problem. The problem usually, but not always, occurs after a run of 200 km or more, but after the first occurrence...

Yes I know, the youngest of the R129s will be an old car that is 15 years old now, but bear with me.
I test drove what looked to be a fairly good 2001 SL320 this morning. The car had just under 100k miles but seemed to have been looked after. Anyway it felt much heavier to drive than I...

What is the correct right height of a 1995 SL320 and a 1998 SL320 special edition as the latter seems to be too high on one side. The car has the 17" EVO style alloys and from the top of the tire to the wheel arch is 65mm. Where as the 1995 is only around 40mm. Is this too high?
I was after some advice? My main key for my 1996 Sl320 was damaged by a hotel parking attendant and will not work. The hotel are willing to pay for this however, believe it or not Mercedes Benz UK have said they cannot source this key and that there is nothing they can do. This is quite...
On this SL I seem to be a little stuck. When I bought the car, it had an aftermarket head unit installed yet still the original speakers. As all speakers well shot, I replaced all in both doors and installed a new pioneer head unit, so that I can play my phone through it. This worked...

I'm told the rattling sound coming from underneath my 2000 R129 SL320 is the catalytic converters breaking up. Other than the OEM ones which are very expensive has anyone had after market cats fitted and if so would you recommend them or not? :confused:
Any advice greatly appreciated.
