I'll be curious how it does in real-world mpg too compared to EPA estimates. My diesel Chevy Cruze is rated at 52 mpg highway but it gets 65 mpg highway. Urban is a little more accurate (though the...

Regarding the colors, maybe I'm wrong but in my experience this has long been the case for plastic interior parts in my W124. Rear speaker covers, the plastic pieces at the bottom of the B pillars,...

Bodhi is coming back someday for sure but it's just been a longer process than I thought so I've been tempted to get another one to play with in the interim. To be honest my main motivation on this...

I daily drove my 87 300D for over 10 years but the rust got to be too much. I'm still working on restoring it but it turned out to be a bigger project than I intended (life gets in the way plus I'm...

It doesn't say there's an airbag in it. It very clearly says the opposite.

Nah I get what you're saying. I think it's just a matter of taste and I'm guessing a lot of people would prefer the 126 or 123. I'd probably prefer a 116 to 126, but, considering you can find a great...

Yes location probably matters but like I said, scarcity in general. Plenty of decent or very nice w126s to be had all over. Same thing with 123 vs 115. I've seen lots of pretty meh 115s go for $5k...

Umm, I know this car is not perfect, but if it's "very rough" I hate to think what mine are. I wouldn't even call it rough. Yeah the price seems a little high but W116 SDs are pretty scarce in...

I'm definitely not expecting it to be trouble-free (mainly the emissions crap) which is why I bought the extended warranty. The dealer is a mile from my house and I get a loaner for any time it's in...

Do you have a second tank on the car? Or does your data combine some fillups? Going 1,300 miles without filling up sounds nice.

Just out of curiosity, how much rust does it have? Seems a shame for it to be parted out if it's running and driving and in generally good order.
