Hi MB lovers<br>I bought a w116 280 se from 1972 with 132.000 kms on it (less than 90.000 mls!). It¦s my first classic car and I¦m enjoying it a lot. It¦s an automatic without any of the electronic gadgets like power windows or sunroof. It does have a power antenna which is stuck. The paint (Sahara) is perfect, there¦s no rust and the chrome is like-new. The interior looks virtually unused. It was imported from Italy to Holland (where I live) which perhaps explains the great condition. The only flaw is the relatively loud noise coming from the back axle between 70 and 90 km/h (45 - 55 mph). I¦ve heard these ¦problems¦ are fairly common and aren¦t very serious. Any thoughts on this?<br>Maarten

Hey<br> <br> I too have a 72 280SE - unfortunately not in the same shape as yours! But still loved nonetheless.<br> <br> As to your problem have you checked the drive shaft coupling?
