The usual AMG / SL refinements - please let me know if you want to know more.

Bad points / known issues:

It’s 20 years old, it’s going to need some TLC however given the above spend and upgrades this is an excellent SL55 and would make a brilliant project.

The passenger xenon can be temperamental (both bulbs have been replaced, spare ballasts provided)

The soft closure for the boot doesn’t work (fix detailed on forum) the central locking works fine.

The interior trim for the side mirror is missing (£38 on eBay)

The remote range of the key is very poor and you need to stand very close to the door to lock and unlock)

The IC pump is showing it’s age and would benefit from the uprated 010 Bosch IC pump being installed.

The AC recently started reporting low refrigerant. If I am able to find time to get this regassed at ATS I will. It’s been fine until this month.

Thanks for looking, additional details and images to follow, please PM if interested in viewing.

The car is located in London, and I’m asking for £9,750.

New MOT - Expiring Feb 2025.

Now Reduced to £7000.

The roof has stopped working, battery light illuminated and pulley / bearings need doing as one of the ancillaries are rattling. Fine with the belt off.

Makes for a decent project car.
Reduced £6750 - makes a decent project to get ready for this summer…
No interest at all, and then suddenly two forum members on the same day hours apart.

Sold to a forum member and an all round gent.

Smooth sale and hassle free, wishing you all the best with the car.

I’ll leave it for the new owner to introduce himself and the car should he wish to do so.
