RE: Group buy. W140 manual

This was a group buy to help everyone get the manual for 1/8 the cost anywhere else, if you are in a big hurry you can buy yourself a copy from all data and I ll refund your money.

The money you calculated and you think "I have" is already spent on the manual itself (that I haven’t received yet); blank DVDs, plastic sleeves, stamps, and protective envelopes. These things are not free, and they add up when you buy 25 of them.

All above adds up to almost 9.10 per order. I ended up making less than like 90 cents per order, that’s fine though, because I am not doing this for profit, I am doing it voluntarily because I love Merc.

Sorry for the delay, I am blamed for it, but again, I am not a store, and I don’t have a customer care policy, however, I promise, the DVDs will be out as soon as I can.

As an update, my supplier sent me today a confirmation number via USPS showing an item billing info received electronically in April 4th, so will see this time.

RE: Group buy. W140 manual

Hi Bayhas,

Sorry. I just wanted to make sure that we were not going to have to wait another month. By looking at the details you provided, and the fact that it is already with USPS, makes me confident as well as to everyone else that we will get the DVD soon. As for the link, i saw it on the posting by winspt. www.startekinfo.com

You can't see much since you need a subscription, but under 'MB workshop resource', click on 'service manual library' to find the part number for the 140 CD and then go to 'literature ordering info', click on 'numerical list', and the part is P-2700-140-04.

But I just realize reading thesite again that the price is really 87.50 and its already discounted. So my bad. You will hear no more comments from me man.

Unless this thing doesn't work [;)]

RE: Group buy. W140 manual

Okay good peoples...I have some good, some bad news, and some really good news:

Good news:
Here is the good news the DVD's are in: notice that I said the DVDs and not the DVD. The manual turned out to be 2 DVDs and not one! The thing is huge!

Bad news is I need more blank DVDs! I need 2 extra bucks from everyone! Sorry!

The very good news though is I installed the manual on my computer and you can consider me a non certified dealer from now on, because the manual I have is the Mercedes shop manual!

I'll start shipping the finished copies tomorrow, i have 10 sets copied already, i trust you guys and I know you'll send me extra fee.
