Still about.
Dont bother logging on most of the time.
I just comment when I see something important.
Between work & moderating on a site, I find there is plenty to keep me occupied.

You dont give any details of the application/motor.

10/10 you are correct. Hot fluid is fine. Low fluid or moist fluid will kill plates. Drive ~10 miles in traffic with trans changing up & down on an old trans low on fluid & it will be in trouble.

My brother has a C280, great car, goes well, there is not a lot of room left under the hood. I think it would fit in the 123 no problems. 280E is very common here (123 with the 280 motor).
