  1. Treating dry leather seats & headrests

    W220 S-Class
    I used Dubbin on the leather for many years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubbin It's relatively cheap, and it's the best thing for leather really. Leather is dead skin, and the oils dry up. We need to replace them. Now for the downsides and upsides of Dubbin .... It's oily and greasy and that...

    I've noticed that. I think we buy the cars and then we don't have much else to say. I don't have any good news to give either. I'm selling my beautiful V6 G-Tronic in a few days to immigrate. I will always miss it, but there are not other choices. Glad you are keeping your wife's car.

    As far as I know, there was never a badged C200 Sports Coupé. They were all called the C30K Sports Coupé whether they had an the original 230 engine, a 1800, or finally C230 (no K) the V6 2.5l. Search for the C230 Sports Coupé or then the CL203. On a quick search, I found this page. Search some...

    I had them on my 1993 320E with no problem either, and they do look great. It suits the car.

    Looks terrific! If you don't mind me asking, what mirrors are those? The passenger side mirror has always been an eyesore on the w124.

    Considering the state of corruption that SA is now facing, Cape Town is the last station of sanity and civilisation hehe. There are very few left hand drives here. People are easily confused LOL! It's funny to pull up to them at a traffic light and grin at them. It never made any difference to...

    I always say that there are two things that can never be too quick. Cars and Computers. Everything else should take its time. Unless it is waiting in a queue. I was, of course, talking about the 320e. There is a major performance difference between the 300 and the 320 which is why systems like...

    That I am not so absolutely sure about. While I believe it will be quicker, I don't think it will be by that much of an impressive margin. I owned a 1993 320e. That straight 6 engine was a rocket. It was actually faster than my current 7G-tronic V6. It was a brute. In fact, all it needed was...

    Probably not. I was just kidding. The question on my mind is will it be quicker than my old 320? :D

    I'm just amazed at how you have managed to blend the two. I've started following late in the game. I'm mostly just reading. As perverted as it sounds, I can't wait to hear what a Corvette engine sounds like through a Mercedes Benz exhaust :D :devil

    Speed wise, it is easy to remember because 60mph is very roughly 100kph. 200kph isn't very fast. That's my story and I'm sticking with it ;) While I love Corvettes, and Mercedes Benz, I don't necessarily approve of mixing them up. I still find this an interesting thread, though.

    I would NOT laugh if someone gave me a free W124 LOL! I'd be smiling!
  13. How fast have you ever driven?

    General Mercedes-Benz
    Led Zeppelin is definitely NOT a good soundtrack to listen to on the freeway. The 'stairway to heaven' leads straight to jail LOL!

    General Mercedes-Benz
    I only just saw this thread. I must confess that I love the thrill of speed, but I am not turned on by stupidity. I have no problem hitting 125mph (200 km/h) on the freeway. Ordinarily, my car gets almost no use so I try to hit the freeway from time to time, and do a short run at around 110 mph...

    I speak under correction, of course, but since I owned a 320e, I know this is a fact on my old car. The car always pulls away in second gear when in economy. When you engage sports it switched to first gear. Does it damage your car? Absolutely not LOL! Mine had 300 000km and it was mostly in...
