Looking very nice! Some nice options on there like the magic sky roof and electric wind deflector.

Where did you get the options listed with associated prices? I've managed to get a full listing of all the factory fits on my SL350 from vin decoder, but it doesn't have the pricing like your one does.

I asked the Mercedes Dealer to do me a print off and that's what they gave me. It's an "Oasis" enquiry I think

Congratulations, a great deal :thumb: :) I presume the tyres are the originals. Just check the DOT date and ii the sidewalls have perished in any way. 7/8 years old ??

Looks lovely that. It's odd it sat still for so long although it happens. I have a car in the garage which hasn't moved in coming up for 8 years. It's nothing special be a relatively modern car but houses, kids and more cars just got in way.

In terms of stuff perishing, a genuine albeit slightly rhetorical question. Is there a reason why rubber parts should perish any worse than a normal 6 year old car? Some may become brittle but surely less so than a car that's been outside, driven on salty wet roads etc.

Either way, lovely car OP, enjoy. :)

Well done, Sir. Very tasteful.

Methinks you got a bargain there. I love low mileage cars
