==========================Nothig on the road looks quite like the 107(450/380/560 Sl). If you
go with the 380 Sl, buy the Mercedes Service CD and expect to use it.
Owning one of these is like being married -- expect to put a lot of
effort into it, but it is not all work. Find a source of cheaper than
dealer parts (www.bimmerzome.com is where I buy many of mine).
If you can stand to have a car not quite so cool, you will probably
have less work keeping the newer one on the road. Frankly, to me they
look like a lot of other cars from lesser manufacturers.
