Stumbled upon this and wanted some feed back. It's 1993 600SL, 70k
original miles, interior is mint, everything works, no rust, good
paint, soft and hard top both in good shape, runs and drives nice.
Now for the things i'm not so sure about. Car has a prior salvage
title due to a front/side accident without airbag deployment. Owner
who has his own shop says he bought it and fixed the accident damage
and it wasn't all that bad. The little strut warning light thing is
on and i'm not sure what that means. The ASR warning light came and
stayed on when we first ran the car. He got it to turn off by
turning the car off and then back on again. Said it's never done
that before. When I accelerated from a stop at WOT, I noticed the
traction control kicked in around 30mph but i'm not sure if I hit
road paint or a wet spot and made the wheels slip? When I went to
select reverse, it just revved, so I moved the lever down a tad more
between R and N and reverse engaged just fine. PO said the linkage
needs to be adjusted. Rollbar keeps popping up and needs a sensor.
These are the main issues I had with the car, and was wondering if
i'd be getting into a real headache? Asking price is aorund $10k.

If you don't run, then for sure get it thoroughly checked out by a
reliable mechanic, either a local shop that knows MB or the dealer,
before you buy it.
I suspect as others have suggested that you will find some of these
things could cost $$$ to fix.
