Hi all,

Just purchased today!

Going to spend the next week detailing and getting the car even cleaner! Now just have to empty the garage and find somewhere for the hard top!

As you can see the wheels are AMG replicas. It originally came with AMG split rims, as I have the original sale bill....someone must have sold them to make a quick buck and replaced with these. Even so..I'm very happy!

Gorgeous.

My dearly departed dad left behind an sl280 which my mum now drives - with the original 8 hole alloys.

Holds a very special place in my heart, does this shape SL.

Replica wheels or not. That is one beaut of a motor.
Don't change a thing. Except - Waxa on - Waxa off.

I knew I could count on you guys for some support! Thanks.

A quick trip to get some new bulbs then.

And then a second key from MB (gulp), then a wind deflector, then some new roof windows....

oh well...better than cash sitting in a plunging stocks and shares ISA....well, thats my justification for the purchase!

Have a good day....I haven't smiled so much when driving for ages!

Can you replace the plastic roof windows with glass on these? I've seen it done on Boxsters and it looks much better IMO.

Sadly not, due to the way it folds up.
