That's one formidable machine!
I can vouch for the wonderful feeling i get every time I drive my newly purchased R230 SL.
As much as I love driving either of my CLK, the SL is in a league of its own.

Geoff, as a matter of interest, are you able to divulge the cost of the parts and cost of labour ? I would be very interested to see those fugures. Regards Styria

Engine mounts job is close to 100 hours labour. Parts cost was inconsequential

Yes Michel I was told V12 was a marketing decision not engineering. And V8 is so much superior to work on . Basically entire front end has to be disassembled to do engine mounts including remove that beautiful exhaust.
