crabby old guy's first post

Hello to all 'merc' owners,
Im one of those guys who gets one part fixed and another goes wrong! I'm sure one of my ancestors bulldozed a mirror factory. Im driving around Riyadh in a 93 w140 500 SEL and while the climate can be torture for cars at least they dont rust. Yesterday the a/c diverted the fan to the side vents only by itself and stayed there. Let me tell you, with average 45 deg c temp outside all you need is a basting ladle on the inside when this happens/the roofs stuck, the driveshaft uj is vibrating, the doors wont self close and the seat heaters come on if you set the a/c above medium. Ive got a good merc trained mechanic who keeps the prices low but the mercedes dealership will steal your teeth. therefore i can get most parts fixed but cannot access any computer fault finding stuff. Personally i like the w126 model for style and the coupe looks superb but the wife likes the w140 for shear presence and its a good car for hiding your nationality in Saudi Arabia.
I hope that between my mechanic and you guys i might get it completely sound
cheers, cg
