New member from Sweden

Hi all!

As a new member I thought I ought to let You know a bit of myself.
I am originally a Citroën CX fan and most recently drove a Citroën XM V6 Break (estate).
But as the annual checkup came closer I knew it would never pass due to lots of rust underneath.
So, after not finding a new good object and being a bit "poor" not working for a while, I turned to other brands and found this Mercedes W124 230TE -88 to be a good catch.
Though mainly in good condition, it needs some important service and some not so important ones.
The most important is a few new rear suspension arms as it rides a bit like a boat and steers when accelerating and engine breaking.
Also I am half way finished replacing the rear spheres.
Then I need to change filters and oil in engine and automatic... probably suspension oil too. (ZHM).

To the less important notes is fixing the teeth on both front power windows, rear window wiper motor, rear window washer pump, power antenna and sun roof that just broke a few days ago.
One side is just stuck in closed position....

Anyway, this is my second Mercedes I have owned. The first was an US-imported 380SLC. Built like a tank. hehehe

Cheers from Sweden!
