Hello all. I am new to this site and new to Benz. I am considering buying my first "toy". I've always been fond of the style of the SL series roadsters (particularly the 450), however I know very little about the model. I'd appreciate any advice about whether or not this would be the right type to consider. I am neither a collector nor wealthy, so I need to make a good choice. I would be most interested in what to look for, what to avoid, service issues, reliability, values, etc... Typical rookie questions. Thanks.
