    Very tempted to upgrade from my SL500 to this SL55. I bought my SL from this company in Cheltenham. No problems there. Just wondered if anyone knew the car itself? Cheers.

    Blue with cream leather is a very classy combination.

    nice looking car, seems a number of possible dramas are dealt with , have a real good look at inner rear wheel arc lips for rust or poor repair .and bottom of boot for any sign of previous water,same for p/s front under carpet . i am a fan of simpler to clean wheels 5 spoke, but its a smart car

    That’s very nice indeed and if you know the vendor (seems to be a Merc Indy?) then a nice warranty could swing it

    Same colour as our SL and looks a good car. Good job I don't bid on Ebay anymore. But if it had been a 65 in that colour....

    I've bought it. Paid just over £12 for it. Mechanically it is great. Its really needs some TLC. Deep clean inside and out.

    Two niggles so far. Would like a new gear stick as current one is very worn at the top. Any ideas best place to find one? And the catch on the centre arm rest has broken so it doesn't close. Again, ideas on were to find a replacement please. Cheers.

    Oh, and it goes like stink!!!

    Total bargain at twelve quid. I'd have paid more.

    You may have to buy the entire centre console, mine was broken on our SL and the part you need wasn't available separately.
    We ended up finding a used console in Grey two tone from a Merc breaker in Wembley.
