Hi, I have a sl55 amg which has been in the garage for around 2 years trying to get sorted.
The said garage had no clue.
There's an issue with the control module under the passenger footwell.
Now I'm a dilemma whether to sell as it is or spend more on trying to get it fixed.

Anyways heres some pics of the beast as it stands now.

I take it’s that not an MB specialist garage ?
Welcome by the way .
 
^ Might be worth trailering to a decent Mercedes indy and get the car looked at to see if its worthwhile spending more money on it.
Looks like the ABC and SAM unit need immediate attention at a minimum.

I'd be inclined to break it for parts if the engine was running before the lay up.
A M113k engine is worth a few quid.
 
Potentially a very nice car - The mileage is not to high for one of these engines, but it looks like it does need some love looking at the MOT history. As mentioned by others i would take it to a recommended MB independent specialist and get a good over view about what it needs and will need in the future, and make a decision based on that outcome.

Good luck
 
Thanks everyone, I think I've made my mind up.
I don't have the time or energy to take it to another garage or to break it. So most likely will let it go as it is.
What would be a fair price for something like this? Thanks

Look at Autotrader and make yours a couple of £k cheaper than the working ones in your age/mileage bracket ?
 
I think it would need to be rather more than a couple of grand less.....for a car with various and unknown faults I would need a much bigger saving off a runner to make the gamble worth while.
 
Sorry, I meant perfect weather to be out in an SL55 with the roof down!
 
Haha yes, always a bonus! 😂
