Regarding the split forums due to models, I think this has been discussed and been sought against only because it would disperse similar topics. IE, the M104 motor was in all model Mercedes' a number of years back. And even though that applied to 4 different models in, say 1995, the engines were the same.
But then again, this would still all be relevent and available when doing a search. So I don't know. I would like a W202 forum, but I do understand the reason if we will not get one!
Anyway, I suppose that's it for now.
