Next item is the turn signal indicator lights in the dash are so dim they can't be seen in daylight. Neither can you hear the clicking sound when the engine is running. The local dealer says this is normal and there are no brighter bulbs or louder flasher units. That's not an acceptable answer to me.

The relay of the indicator cannot be heard on the later W107 SL (GREAT relay; MB should have used that in all their models). The dash indicator lights are very dull indeed. If you put in higher Watt-bulbs, you can get some melting of the plastic innerparts...
I think your shop's answer was pretty acceptable.
