w124 fan e200 e320 sportline


im a w124 fan.

bought my first w124 last year. silvergrey 1994 e200. 106000km
bought my second w124 a month ago. almandine red. 1994 e320 sportline. 182000km

the sportline will become my baby.

she needs lots of tlc. and im willing to give.

i went to my local merc dealer for an assessment of the sportline.

damn nearly broke my heart!

repair costs one third quoted the amount i paid for her!

ive been sitting here sulking all day now thinking about this. after studying my 5 printed pages of quotation.... a little light went on.... i searched the net for blogs and found this.

with careful inspection ive noticed that the w124 parts on my quote are hellish cheap!! (compared to the 2006 bmw 530d i had before!). the service items which are interchangable are hellish expensive. like the oil and brake pads.

i will try to repair most myself. the list is long, but im patient.

will update as i, nay, we, progress...

but for now, still i read and learn..
