    Hi,
    I posted a couple of days ago about an SL500 R129 I was considering.

    In the mean time I test drove the below car

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I'm thinking of making an offer, which I think the guy will accept. Anybody know of local independants in Maidstone area who I could take the vehicle to get checked out at.

    Thanks Oliver

    Hi, have look under Mercedes specialists across the UK on the main page, there might be one listed in your area.

    As an aside ... although that is a 'facelift' R129, it still has the older climate control unit. Unusual, but I think some early ones (which this is) did ship like that. So I don't think it's any cause for concern.

    No heated seats, which is a shame. Can't see from the pics whether it has rear seats.

    I also wondered about the climate control as I looked at facelift model in Berkshire, which had the new electronic control. Just presumed it was an optional extra. Yes only a two seat, which tbh doesn't really concern me.
