This clean R129 generation SL is one of the better values I’ve seen on the market in a while. It’s not the lowest-mile example out there, but it appears well-kept and features both an interesting factory color (Midnight Blue, I think) and desirable Xenon headlights. I’m not a huge fan of the original wheels, but those can be swapped out rather easily.

For well under ten grand, you can’t really find a nicer grand-tourer. In fact it’s really almost laughably cheap.

In a few years, we’ll be looking back wistfully on these final days of the bargain R129.

Looks like this one is still available. Considering that it’s comparable to the slate blue example that sold recently for $13,500 on eBay, the sub $9000 ask here seems like quite the deal.
