John, thank you so very much!

So the autos are mostly or all gone? It was sure a bummer to see so many potentials get scrapped, but can understand.

I have to say that the one I got from John a few years ago still looks impeccable... Not a single problem since... I hope I'm not jinxing myself here!

I need a pair of W123s. Boots on the 240d are quite cracked, I expect after sitting as long as it did that they'll let go fairly quickly now that it's on the road.
