Hello from Romania!

Cheers, guys! Just bought myself a 1993 R129 SL320. Smooth ride but in normal conditions. There are a few things to be done before it's what it's supposed to be. Like the gearbox oil change, the wheels that should b changed with the original ones, etc... Anyway, enough about the car, I'll talk about it in other topics. Myself I'm 26, I work as a salesman and I am a very stubborn guy. I like MB since I was a kid, and till now I had two W123s both with 3 liter diesel engines, a W126 with a 3 liter petrol engine and an Alfa Romeo 156 2.0JTS Selespeed... :P Here are some pictures with my cars.

Just came to the conclusion that the gearbox oil change should be done together with the gearbox. Good news is that the whole operation, including a good (not new) gearbox is going to take just 500 euros out of my pocket. Anyway, the price I paid for the car was low also because of the gearbox problems. (I'm a big fan of Mike Brewer's and Edd China's TV show "Wheeler Dealers" on the Discovery Channel)

Hello!

It's been almost two years since I last wrote something on this thread. In this time the car has been changed... Slowly but surely it's becoming the car that I was always dreaming about. There are loads of repairs that I've done (gearbox, wheel bearings, fan clutch, new waterpump, etc) but the most important work has been done in the last 2 months. New paintjob, new wheels, custom headlamp glass and bi-xenon kit with projectors. I'll post just a few pictures here. Just a few for two reasons.
1. I'll soon open a new thread in which I'll present the beast properly.
2. I don't have any proper pictures, just some taken with the phone just when it got dark.

PS: Hope I will not be thrown rocks at for the angel eyes... Trust me, the stock option was looking very dodgy with the bulb spreading that yellow light from underneath the projector.
