I am a new owner of a 1991 AMG SL300. Can anybody tell me the differnce between a SL and a AMG?
May 04, 2009 (4:55 pm)
I was under the impression that AMG was a high performance group that took Benzes and tricked them out with high perf engines plus other luxury items...I believe they used to be an independent group, and I think Mercedes simply bought them and brought them in-house so that they could make their own HP cars...
This is subject to someone who may know much more than I think I do...but I am pretty sure that AMG cars, esp from 1991, were probably higher perf than the same standard car from MB...

#759 of 786 oil leak in the strangest place
Jun 11, 2009 (4:06 pm)
I have a 92 500SL which recently started leaking oil from above the front window. It is leaking down the visor support and rear view mirror. It leaks freely when top is raised or lowered. Does anyone know if there is a resivore, will it damage the top mechanics, will it run out of oil and finally; what is the fix? I have ruined several pairs of pants.

#763 of 786 Unable to Diagnose Noise Which Occurs at about 45 MPH
Jul 04, 2009 (7:39 pm)
On a 2002 SL 500, there is a noise near 45 MPH that sounds like the brakes dragging. Mercedes and a tire dealer said it was caused by tire noise. The car has the one directional, non-rotatable tires, rear larger dia than front. Put on new set of Dunlop tires and the noise did not change.
Doesn't seem this could be tire noise, especially since new tires did not change the noise. Could be a wheel bearing or what else?
