Interesting to see the bonnet opens and closes like the Saab 900! Never knew that before!

Not always
Give it 15 or 20 years and there will be cheap ones around , just as back in the 1970s you could buy a W198 for anything from a few hundred to a couple of thousand ( cheapest I saw was a crash damaged Gullwing for £200 ) . Now worth just a bit more .

I know someone who bought a 53 Merc and a 68 Muira for peanuts in the oil crisis in the 70's.

Sold the Muira for £265k in 2009.

(wishes he hadn't as it's worth north of £1.4m today.....)

Servicing the SLR

My local independent, Steve at Avantgarde in Clevedon, is the indy who also caters for the SLR. Simple, menu pricing:

| Avantgarde Automotive, Clevedon, Bristol

So, that's spark plug replacement starting at £6k! I knew they were specialist cars but hadn't realised quite how esoteric
