finally i get to enjoy the 3.5 coupe

hi guys

im so happy to have back my car, a 1970 3.5 w111 coupe i bought it off ebay without a ppi but the seller had 100% feedback and it just looked right and i think the price wasn't i won the bidding, a good two and a half months till it reached dubai

it drove well but there was a sound coming from the engine, at first i thought it might have been the exhaust, but got that check and it was fine, the changed the manifold gasket still the sound didn't go away, then the inlet gasket was changed and all was well

at the same time i changed all 8 injectors and spark plugs, plus the high tension wires that connects them..

i felt the car was sitting a bit lower than it should so i asked a few q. here and with the help of tom at the mercedes classic center in irvine i changed all the suspension shocks plus all new suspension coil

and im soooooo happy i did all the above, now it sounds right, sits right and most important of all drives right (this is my 3rd 3.5 coupe and this is one drives the best of them all even pre service)

of course i changed the oil and the oil filter, fuel filter, air filter

so after buying it, to getting it shipped to then working on all these things i got it last night and it was well worth the wait and effort, i promise to try and post pics as soon as i can..

please post your 3.5 coupe pics

thebenzbar thanks a lot

you were a lot of help as well i enjoyed your replies and pm

i deiced to keep the the non factory original coil instead of the Hydro-Pneumatic Compensator which thanks to you and others have told me that it didn't work well anyway

(plus it was out of stock at the mercedes classic center) and im glad to say my car didn't have the incorrect camber angles...and now drives much better than it did wheni got it
