What was your first thread on benzworld?

This was mine in the W126 forums, lol. I was noob sauce back then.


"Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm 17. I like the format and everything, I've seen a lot of the pics of the 126s in the photo gallery and most of them are NICE. Anyway I have a problem with my 86' 420 SEL.

Well we brought the car in to our mechanic and after leaving it there for a few days the guy took the front end of the transmission out and said he replacedthe bosching or something and almost all parts on the front end of the transmission. and that he fixed it. Well after a few days we found out that it leaks. We took it back and a few days later we went back and found out that it leaks puddles. I have no idea what he did but now he says that he will have to replace the torque converter which will cost us at least 200 bucks and all the leaking will hopefully stop. So I'm going back on monday to check the status of that car. I was just wondering if anyone who knows about these cars may know what it is? Thanks for your time.

(By the way this car is in MINT condition and garage kept all her life. Last owner was an OLD OLD man.)"

How much heat did you take regarding your bosching?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
