    Hi all, I am considering buying a merc SL55 amg that is located near Basildon in Essex, I am up in Lancashire and don't really have time at the moment to go down to view it and not being massively technical I am probably not the best person to evaluate the car other than aesthetic things.
    I know it's a long shot but I thought it was worth asking out there if there is any member that is particularly knowledgable on SL55's that might be closer than I am and could go and view, test the car on behalf - I would be happy to compensate you for your time and fuel at an agreed rate.
    If anyone thinks this could be them please let me know.
    Cheers
    Mark

    Pity I am no longer working in Basildon,I can understand the fact that it would be a 500 mile round trip for you is a little daunting,but these cars are not cheap,I have no connection with this company but people on here have said they are a good Mercedes specialist at Basildon,you might give MotorAid Ltd on 01268 591558 even if they charged £50 a hour,it would not take them more than 2 hours to visit and check this car out,if you call them they can only say no,he who dares Rodders

    I saw that one,looks like a stolen recover job I like the special vent in the boot,I suppose you expect that with the individual,the roof has been given a new shape as well,that will take a fair bit of money to put right,problem is those roofs are a problem even when pristine after that sort of abuse anything is possible,some of the glass has gone no real pictures of the inside,damage there and it is just not worth it.
