Hi Everybody.
I joined the forum this afternoon, April 3rd. I live in Hertfordshire England and have a 1986 500 SEC all in black which I have owned for nearly three years. During this time I have replaced both doors due to rust, the rear bumper as the paint was peeling. The water pump which gave up on the motorway one very rainy morning and the propshaft which just broke. The handbrake cable was replaced last year for the M.O.T. I have had a stainless steel exhaust fitted which gives a reasonable sporty note. I also have a custom made set of straight through pipes which exit in front of the rear wheels. These allow the V8 to be heard in all its glory. I use these for shows and the two systems can be swapped by me in around an hour. The car also has 17inch after market Merc alloys. Ibought the car with 18inch Lorinser alloys but unfortunately one of these was slightly buckled on one of our very many potholes. I hope to get this repaired. The car always runs good and strong and is a nice piece of German muscle.

All the best. John.
