Hmmm, SL, two seats and a young family? Are you sure?

I did see a nice 09 SL 350 at the dealers today, it even had a couple of tiny ickle fans in each headrest. That would keep the kids amused for a while? :D

MB direct will only offer you cars up to about 3 years old which will cost megabucks.
Keep trying Autotrader as they do come up occasionally or even the specialist mags.

A 9 and 12 year old will not fit very well into any SL

Well it will only used as a third car in the household,:),boys& their toys:D

The passenger seat in a 129 will slide a long way forward giving plenty of room both back and front, and the other passenger can put their feet sideways on. If you are under 6ft,,then you would not drive the car with the seat right back

The car would have to be driven with the roll bar up,,but it does look very nice in this mode

Never seen any rust ever on a 129,,they really are good,,at the worst a little corrosion on the bottom corners of the hard top
