For the past decade we have been servicing, maintaining, improving and restoring the Mercedes-Benz SL, and in that time we have learnt a great deal. Knowing exactly which components to use comes with time and experience – when it comes to complex and detailed repairs, sometimes it isn’t just a case of choosing the big brand product.
In the world of car parts, there is often huge variation in quality and longevity of a specific part. Sometimes we might have a choice of 10 different products to perform a task, while in other cases we might struggle even finding one. In those cases were multiple products are available, how does one choose exactly which component to fit for the best results?
Thanks to the time spent with the thousands of SLs that have graced our workshops, our team have a comprehensive understanding of what works best for the R107, W113 and R129 SL model range.
Over the last 13 years our showroom, workshop and parts teams have been working together to understand which parts work best for the SL, whether it’s the exact fit of a certain type of seal, the way an oil filter secures in place, how well an air filter occupies the housing, even down to the exact screws to use to reattach a component.
When you have built and restored as many SLs as we have, the wealth of knowledge that is gained becomes invaluable to the task.
Through our CARE Membership program we are giving SL owners access to a decade of information and expertise.
This is more than just a discount on a range of parts, this is a discount on carefully selected components that have survived and excelled over our decade long quality control test, parts that have been fitted to SLs around the world, verified and approved by an international community of SL enthusiasts.
Our staff know that for a certain job, Brand X might be perfect, but for another ailment, Brand X doesn’t feel quite so good out on the road, so we use Brand Y. It’s the simplest things that make the biggest difference… Did you know we tried all manner of adhesives to secure the under bonnet insulation on an R107 before we settled on the product used day to day?
Your CARE Membership means whether you service your car at home, with a local mechanic, here at SLSHOP or anywhere around the world, you’ll always be entitled to that extra bit of discount on the products that we know and love.
We are SLSHOP, and we know that this is what works… for our SLs, and for yours.
