When you drain the oil, try refilling the pan only to what the manual calls for. No more. Then check the stick. Sometimes I have heard of the wrong stick getting in an engine and people putting in too much oil.
next idea: how's your compression? Valve seals? Is it going to the ground or out the tailpipe? 230Sl is a beautiful car.
