In the last few days I ordered:

2 engine mounts,
3 ignition coils,
4 shocks, front and rear
complete brake pad set, front and rear

without immediate need

A case of shopaholic, I guess :eek:

And from whom did you order said parts?

Sorry, but no shopaholic status unless you also ordered brake sensors and brake paste.

I can understand and appreciate all of those except the coils. From what I've heard, coils fail very, very rarely on these things.

Now I could understand if you ordered a pair of window regulators and a couple of spare instrument clusters (!), but coils? ;)

(Actually I've had F&R pads in my trunk for over a year, so I've no room to comment, except I thought I needed them when the warning came on, turned out to be a bad sensor. Other parts include lots of bulbs, a used CPS, repacement sliders and rivets for the rear regulators and I'm sure there's some more I'm forgetting.)

I am glad you resolved the cluster issue, tex.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

It happened from roaming too long on eBay :)
No, I did not buy the brake sensors and paste. Will need them by the time I replace the pads. Now waiting for the pad warning light.

I forgot to mention the 4 tires bought last month, while still having 5/32 on the tires. My wife made a bet that I wouldn't let a month elapse without spending anything for my Benz'le, and until now she always won.
