    I own the new S Class and want to buy a classic SL. I have been looking on ebay and dont know which year or engine to go for. Does anyone have any advice as to which ones not to go for or which ones are ok/

    Thanks

    Kiki

    P.S - I like the SL 500 on a 1982?

    2013 ML350 AMG, 1989 500SL Now sold, replaced with 2007 Aston Martin DB9
    If you are looking at a 1980's 500SL, then go for a post 1985, when the model had a significant update.

    As Grober said if you are near MB World, then visit the SL day on Sunday.
