As with all of our cars this example will be sold with a full service using correct filters and fluids, a comprehensive pre delivery inspection which includes multiple checks and extensive tests… anything that is found to be requiring attention is attended to or flagged for attention which is why our cars take time to come to market. The cars are then independently MoT inspected and come with a 24 month SL Shop warranty. Crucially ALL of our cars now come with a BULK HEAD warranty. As you may have learned this is the Achilles heel for SL’s and buying a car from The SL Shop means you will not have this issue which effects every car to some degree and can, in some cases be a very expensive repair see http://www.theslshop.com/bulkhead-repairs

A large history file, documents and MoT certificates. The service booklet contains 8 service entries.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
