Thanks for the feedbac on B by B

"FWIW, I had a bad experience with Benz by Blair here in Houston and won't be going back. I too have been to MPH, on Steve's recommendation, and was pleased with Michael's attitude and extensive knowledge about my car. I will certainly go back to him for any repairs I need done, that I can't accomplish."

I don't know when this happened but he has since moved to a different facility (starlane off of Chimney Rock) and is challenged to meet biz expenses, thus leasing floor space to a foreign car dealer. This means service for Porches & Beemer's also. Don't know if this had an impact , but have noticed the quality of service lately. Had pass. mirror replaced and the door was left in a greasy/dirty condition. NO effort to clean it was evident, so I'm watching, this may be the last tech assist I get from him and fight and claw my way up hwy 6 to I-10! But hey still luv the C280!...

Thanks to all for the assist. Yes I saw the pics on the carboned up hole but will take me time to locate it and figure out what needs to be removed to access it. Thanks, Leon

Wink why I sold the SD

AH the weakness of bending to the times. Don't have much room in our subdivsion and she needed a few more $$$$ of TLC; kinda like using Micro$oft products..he-he . Did a long term Vs newer model process and we found the C280.

Good learning curve for me. If the Lord EVER let's me come across one of those lil'ol ladies had it in the garage kinda of deals again, he-he gonna have to go for it. The SD just rides soooo well and the quality of the body fit etc. far above the 94 I have. The '94 has visible alignment gaps on the door seam, the sun roof, etc, sigh just not the same. And thaks to this site actually lost the fear of working on a "MB". Once again though the strenght of this site are the many experienced and willing contributors, my hat off to you dudes & dudettes!

I agree that all of the W126 diesels are surely the best diesels MB ever sold, but especially the 86-87's for the long wheelbase and added power / refinements.

I still to this day feel they were underpriced in relation to what their real value should've been.
