Just a quick post to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Mark, live in Northamptonshire, I'm looking at getting an R231 SL63 as a daily drive and joined here to pick some brains :)

Welcome to the forum Mark. Good choice of car:)
The 5.5 biturbo engine is a peach. A full and complete service history is a must. Ensure the ATF has been changed at 31k miles and plugs changed every 4 years.
Try to find a 2013> model with revised timing chain. Some of the earlier ones were a bit problematic.
If the car misfires at all during a test drive, walk away. Depending on the cause, it could mean a terminal failure in Cylinder 5 and a very expensive rebuild.

This is a useful read.
