NEW MEMBER - MERCEDES BENZ
I have been doing research on MB for awhile. I bought Daimler & Benz: the Complete History and have enjoyed it a lot. I like the 1988 - 1989 300 E or 420 SEL. I would like any FEED BACK that anyone out there might have ON these cars.
1. Engine and engine well? There is more room with the 300 then the 420 to work on it yourself.
2. Is it difficult to tune up a 1989 300 E with your own tools and timing light?
3. What about the 3.0 and 4.2 engines. If you take good care of them can you get 300k miles?
4. What are the weak points in the engines you have to watch out for?
