An old SL like yours is a SMALL sports car with a BIG engine, and MB engine/tranny/rear-end combos tend to run at slightly higher RPMs than many other cars (which will make it inherently louder), and are not as well-soundproofed as the newer models, so are you sure what you're hearing isn't just "normal" engine noise?
