If it weren't for MercedesShop, I'd sell my Benz

I have been looking for a 75 degree C thermostat for my W126, 117 motor after I discovered that they do exist(I found one in a 380 sel, 116 motor from a parts car). After checking all my usual sources, which are quite good btw, with no luck, I called Phil at PartsShop, for the first time I might add. To make a long story short, it arrived yesterday and it was a Wahler 75 degree just like I wanted and for ONLY $13. I put the used one I found in my car as a test and it lowered my engine temp to 80 around town. Car still warms up in 5 minutes in the am and gas mileage is the same, the temp just stays down where I think it should be in this hot place. Today it will be 80!! Now I have a new spare thanks to Phil and PartsShop. Thanks, Phil

Gotta love it here!

My W124 was too, slated for the auction block, until I joined this forum. Even my wife contends that the 'ole 93 will probably become a permanent member of the family...alongside my first car, the even older '73 VW.

It's an even better feeling when you can fix 'em yourself!

Couldn't agree more...

My '91 300E was on it's last leg when I got it as a hand me down. My mom neglected it, but she did change the oil regularly -- preserving the engine at least. I've done so many repairs to this car thanks to this forum that they are literally too many to list. The car is in almost perfect running and cosmetic condition now.
