A friend of mine has a friend who has an 85 Euro 240D. I heard there weren't that many built! Can W123ers confirm this?

I dont' remember if there is a detailed info about it in 126 forum? if not can you give some insight on it?
It has a Mosselman Twin Turbo system that I put on it. WHEN it runs correctly it dynos out at about 320RWHP @ 6# boost. The problem that I am having with that system right now is the turbo electrics are not playing well with the ECU on the car and I am getting detonation and so I have it backed off to 0. I have been working on a couple of other projects for both me and clients and have not put much time into the 126.

It is lowered to AMG spec with Bilstein shocks and H&R springs. Correct AMG front and side effects with Anthracite exterior and Custom Brazil Brown Interior with Rosewood and titanium trim. The car was going to SEMA but the Turbo screwed me up and I don’t have a car to take. It is in Indy right now getting some pictures done for a advertising company. I will have pics from that shoot posted in a few weeks.

The only shots I have of the car that are not in pieces are from back in April before the Bornite car was in the family. The 126 does not have the AMG package installed at that time.

Unhappy

Unfortunately I sold my '02 E55 in Tectite Grey. One of 87 '02's in Tectite for the US market. Still kicking myself for that one.

I checked and all my vehicles are unique. They have different vin's, nobody else has these numbers. How many ML55's were built? My 93 500E you don't see everyday and My 02 CLK55 is one of 9 or 12 (Designo Cab. w. Comand/Nav.)

Isn't that a couple of pics of the AMG steering wheel that you bought a bit back with lots of added accessories attached to it. Looks very nice. I also like the Arctic White 500E. The solid matching trim makes it kick. I am going to look at that with the Bornite using the panels from the other car [just in case]
