We all know Benzworld is the best 107 forum, despite Nobby recruiting Hal.
What's second best?
I like Mercedesshop, followed by MBCA, then OurSL.
There is considerable overlap in contributors, but those also-rans cannot compete with the witty repartee found herein.

Well I've heard that the best benz site there is (except for 107's) is
www.mbworld.org

MercedesShop is second, MBCA is third, MBWorld is last - for good reason.

It was before my time, but according to rumblings on OT some time ago the principal at MBWorld had differences with the originators of BenzWorld....

Mercedesshop has a lot of good information, but the site is difficult to use, there's too much crammed all into one place (every SL ever made in one forum?) and there's no definitive spot to go to if you want a question answered. It's sloppy. Useful if you have the patience to dig out the gems, but sloppy.

MBCA makes no sense to me, from an end-user viewpoint. If you want actual technical help, you have to go to the catch-all technical forum. Sure, people might help you if you post in the model-specific forum, but many of the really good technical people only read the technical help forum. Which means you've got questions about a 1979 300D posted next to questions about a 2007 ML350. Easy for the moderators, sucks for the users.

OurSL is just deadly slow.

I guess if I had to rate them, my rating would be the same as yours, but I think the leap from here to anywhere else is the big one, then the steps are all small ones.

MBWorld is actually a spin-off of BenzWorld.

In this order.....Anywhere Germanstar is.


Actually BW followed by oursl (for sentimental reasons) and then mercedesshop.com. I, like Scott, don't like the set up at the last one.

After those three.....I have a life.
You know.
