and in furtherance to your post Paul...you wouldn't know this cause you don't own a coupe...even though my car is considered a "w124" there are many different intricacies between the sedans and the coupes as well as the fact that my car is 24V 3.0L, so i've set myself on autopilot to always ask questions redundantly....
sorry if this irritates you...and if it really does...then don't read my posts

new or old member does it really matter...
if i ask a question should i be thrown onto the chopping blocks cause i may be redundant...

i get asked the same questions all the time on here...and does it really hurt that much to re-answer simple yes and no questions?
"do you have a w124?" yes/no....
it's not like i'm asking you to pull your own teeth...

but regardless...sorry if i irritated all of you guys with my yes and no question.

i wasn't even going to respond.

WHAT does matter here is how you treat others.

the courtesy and respect you show will either go along way or it won't.

this is one site that doesn't sit still for a lot of petty games.

ebennz,
no games...
just shocked that some of you can get so bent out of shape
over someone asking "do you have a w124?"
plain and simple. i wasn't the one "hitting me over the head" with a simple question as Paul so gingerly did...
so how is it that i'm treating anyone poorly?

enough said.

It seems to me like rich is being treated poorly for asking a question. Regardless of whether your car was in your signature, is it that hard to respond and say this is what I have? Vs. Giving him a hard time?

I really wasn't trying to be mean to Rich.

It was just a gentle reminder...

As I've said multiple times before, it's so hard to read into the tone of a posting: sarcasm, wit, humor, tongue-in-cheek, etc.

I was a little surprised at how upset it made you, Rich. I decided that I wouldn't respond because my playful intent didn't get across, but it was no big deal, since it happens with other postings on this board from time to time.

We all just need to lighten up a little...

I'm going to the GTG and I just posted there, too.

Make sure you bring Gavin. He's a miracle worker with his detailing tips.

I can also show off my newly installed Bosch euro lights, newly painted wiper panels, and newly painted front and rear bumpers and impact strips.

That's right! Thanks to Enrique, my head is rebuilt, new valve guides and seals, and the new head gasket. I'm back in business and leak free!

Thank you for the referral for Enrique!

The total bill was about $1,990.

The work for the head gasket, valve guides and seals was about $1,600.

The remainign $300 and change was for other extra things I had him do - install the throttle actuator that I bought from Fastlane and couldn't return, flush out the old 'green' coolant from the expansion tank and overflow tank and refill with MB 'yellowish-pink' coolant, new plugs / wires, new light for the shift gate, etc.

My old mechanic quoted me $2,000 just for the head job work, so I was very pleased with the amount of the bill and the quality of the work.

I dropped the car off on Thursday before 4th of July because I had a business trip to New York. He worked on it the Saturday after July 4th, but the machine shop was closed. I picked the car up the following Friday after work, but he was done on Thursday.

There is really no difference in power, but the leak is gone, and the car idles incredibly smoothly. Just perfect. It was smooth before, but not this smooth. It is completely silent and unnoticeable.
