    R129 SL500
    Have been doing a bit of research on my 1993 R129 SL500 and was interested to see from Wiki that starting in 1993 for the 1994 model year, R129 were re-designated so 500SL became SL500.

    I am interested to find out what the chassis number of the first 1993 SL500 would have been. For sake of comparison, mine is 92220 from VIN WDB1290672F092220.

    Any expert knowledge out there much appreciated!
