Buying a used car

I live in Oklahoma and I am looking to buy a Mercedes Benz that was orginally sold and driven in California. Will there be performance issues driving the car in Oklahoma? Thanks.

Year and model?

2006 500SL

OK, then not an older one suffering with California emissions controls. I can think of nothing on a 2006 500SL sold in CA that would hurt performance in OK. Enjoy!

p.s.-I like that version’s styling much more than the recent restyle.

Thanks for your help.

No problems; the car is very much the same as the ones sold in Ok. The gasoline is bad everywhere now.
