New member as of today but lurking for a while. I have had my 88 300 SEL for a couple of months now and loving it more every day. My first Mercedes. I was originally looking for W123 but stumbled on the 300 right here in these pages (see aforementioned lurking) and decided the W126 would do I have already been pouring through some of the DIY fixes and found some resources on the mechanics page, so thank you to all who take the time to post the knowledge. It is much appreciated.
