SL320
Afternoon all
I thought it would help people filter me out as it were if I was to include a clue or 2 in the title
I have have just traded my Scimitar SS1 in against a 1994 SL320.
I havent picked it up yet, it could be ready for the weekend or by early next week.
Its my first Mercedes and I was hooked as soon as I drove her.
Its a 1994 (L) car with 45000 miles on the clock with the history to back it up.
Ill add photos etc in due course if that is the done thing.
I am in Leeds West Yorks.
The plan is to opt out of the company car scheme in due course and the Merc will be both daily drive and weekend car with my partners Peugeot as back up.

cheers
David

I did not think the 320 was out that early either, may be it is a 300 but got a 320 badge. Hope this helps

The 129063 that came out in 1996 had the inline and the 129064 with the 112 V6 came out 06-98 the way to tell on the cars was oval wing mirrors and 17" standard with the V6.

Mine is WDB1290632F106132, engine number 10499122008010 first registered 01 08 1994. The 320 with the inline 6 was offered in the UK from autumn 1993. The OP's 1994 L Reg car will almost certainly have the 104991 engine
