    Hello, I am introducing myself as a new member and new to Mercedes ownership having bought a 2002 R230 SL500. My friend keeps telling me I should have bought an R129 but I wanted the hard top convertible and have planned a trip to Spain in it this September. So finger crossed she behaves herself. So far I have driven about 600 miles in her and she seems a lovely car to drive, I intend to get her checked over before I leave for Spain just in case.

    Hi Richard, welcome to the forum. The R230 is still a good choice and are quite a few members on here with them so you won't be short of help and advice :)

    Hello and welcome! If you’re going that far from home, get the ABC fluid and filter changed and have the ABC system fully tested by a known Indy well in advance of your departure. Also, check the boot for water leaks...

    You could walk out to your car to find it collapsed on its wheels with a big green puddle of suspension fluid on the floor...? :D
