    Legend Fonzi, it's like an animal shelters - but for R107's :-) I look forward to the next update :D
  3. Upgrade Head Unit recommendations

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Hi BThompVaTech, I've / had two 2004 CLK and I upgraded head units in both of them with the capabilities you're looking for except for the reversing camera which I don't need. To maintain compatibility with steering wheel controls you need a set like this one...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    You'e being very cryptic Djenka ;-)
  5. Most reliable Mercedes engine V6 ,V8, V12 in last 20 years ? How does New engines stand agains older ?

    General Mercedes-Benz
    M113 takes the cake, thought I've no complaints re M116 / M117 variations and the M271 which I now have for years. Also used to drive a 602 and 611 Diesels and no major issues. The long story short - as long as it's maintained properly the MB engine will pretty much run like perpetuum mobile. :D
  6. Windshield Washer problem

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Yep, as Benzyle said - the screws are under the bonnet.
  7. Aftermarket Windscreen/ deflector worth it?

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Gorj, you ought come to the West of Ireland once - where even if it's sunny you can still get gale winds. At any rate I use the deflector primarily on motorway to prevent loose items from being flown out of the cabin, guess how I learnt ;-)
  8. pre 86 epc on disc

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Have you tried the online EPC-light like this one https://mercedes.7zap.com/en/eu/fg/car/? Or does it suffer from the same issue? I haven't come across anything missing in the Xentry yet - or maybe I don't know about it becuase it's missing lol!
  9. Revisiting the past - 1973 450SL

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    My jaw broke when it hit the floor..... ;) Fantastic work.
  10. What a Wonderful Journy

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Got it, thanks - I saw the first pics you posted but not the detailed of the engine rebuild. Very, very spectacular outcome - phenomenal effort & fair play to you! Thanks for posting those as it helps me understand which parts need zinc replating, among a million other details ;-)
  11. Difference between VIN & FIN

    General Mercedes-Benz
    Hi Salah, FIN and VIN are the same for Euro cars (FIN = Fahrzeug-Identifizierungs-Nummer in German, VIN = Vehicle Identification Number) and by extension should match. YOur car isn't Euro which explains why FIN is different, however I've no idea if it's physically referenced anywhere in the...
  12. Yellow?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Yes, a number of yellow variations were offered factory and the palette was updated every few years - I can't tell the specific years when which was offered, but if you're searching for "what does it look like?" ideas have a look here which provides paint codes and pics (not exhaustive though)...
  13. What a Wonderful Journy

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Welcome lfedje, your new babes look great - any chance you have some pics of your old 107 somewhere? I'd love to take a look as I'm in the process myself.
  14. ‘79 450SL fuel pump not running

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Sound Milktruck, let us know how you get on! I think I temporarily swapped mine with the top one from the left column for testing.
  15. Picked up my first C107 :)

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    They must be quite rare, I haven't seen this particular style before. Nice!
  16. W209 CLK grill swap. 3 fin for 4 fin. Is it a straight swap?

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Yep, as Benzyle mentioned it's straightforward plug and pray🙏 I meant plug and play 😁
  17. Hood Badge Removal?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Here's the emblem with the grommet, waiting to be fitted after my old lady has been resprayed in Q4. Same as original, 1979 450SL.
  18. Aftermarket Windscreen/ deflector worth it?

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    I usually have the deflector fitted for the entire topless season, and like rudeney Ive the front windows up on the motorway, cruising 75-80 mph is pure bliss. At 120mph probably too, though I'm yet to drive that fast :LOL:
  19. World Record for Mercedes E 320 CDI

    General Mercedes-Benz
    Hi Christian, that's hardly run in 😅 just kidding, very impressive!
  20. Exhaust tips facing down
