Intro

Hi All,

Hello to all my fellow MB lovers! I'm on my second used MB, the first one was a beat up 1985 300 D-T received in a trade for a much better vehicle (MB fever over came me) that needed too much work for my limited budget at the time.

The second time appears to be the charm as I bought a 1990 300SEL (347k miles) from a guy that needed to get rid of it after spending $500 on items that had nothing to do with the immediate problems the car was experiencing, i.e. overvoltage protection relay and EHA regulator both shot. One catalytic convertor (from the good people over at TJ's Muffler and Brakes in Loganville, GA and the above mentioned problems handled by RWB Imports in Snellville, GA and the car is on its way to being more than a serviceable daily driver for the wife as the interior and body are in great shape!

I'm looking to learn everything I can about the beloved W126 series as far as maintenance, detailing etc. and look forward to what appears to be a fantastic resource for MB lovers.
