Does anybody have any experience & feedback with enhancing the ignition system on the six? I'm hoping to preserve my starter motor by avoiding all the cranking currently necessary to fire the beast.

I have a hot coil handy- and I'm looking at something like the MSD-6 system; wish that Bosch would have marked the + and - terminals on the current coil!

Thanks- John Cazin '88 300sel

There is no problem with the stock units unless you are going to do high performance work. The starters usually last 200K or more? I don't understand.

If the vehicle is hard to start or requires an excessive amount of cranking, it would be better to find the culprit instead of adding on to the stock ignition system which is more than adequate for the vehicle.
