European Members/Versions??!!??

Would be nice for european members to participate and have their experience and knowledge tapped whenever we who own euro versions in the US work on our euro diesels. This comment is really not just limited to the european members but just about every country outside the US because I believe its only in the US that non-european versions were shipped to.

With that said, let see a show of hands of our euro owners..... especially the ones with W123, W116, W126......

The euro models really aren't that much different than the US models. Just...more special...

84 280 e euro five speed with 369 rear end originally brought into us to run in the 1984 amerithon ralley which was to have run from ca to tip of south america to alaska and back. The ralley was canceled and the car lingered around until it was converted back to a street configuration.

I bought it originally around 1991 and kept it til about 1994 sold it along and bought it back in 2005. I am using it as a dedicated autocrosser. It has lowering springs and konis on back, running kumho slicks this year. I have a 369 rear end that has been converted to limited slip using a 190e 16v donor diff. I haven't got it installed yet but hope to get it up and running soon.

Mechanically there is really not much difference as far as maintainance goes, it just has more compression, more aggressive cams (I think) freeer flowing headers and the resulting more power.

Its pretty peppy.
