Thanks much, yours doesn't look too bad either. Mine belonged to a family so filthy rich, it was their butler's car, with which he picked up kids form school and groceries. Must be rough!

Seems entirely possible to me! And for those of us less englished(?) graf means count, duke would be herzog. Hehe.[;)]

So here comes Episode 3! You guys just love our cars, don't ya? [:p]

I took pics with my camera phone recently, also with the brake light mod a couple of weeks ago. Now I'll have to get myself a bluetooth so I can upload them...

Ike, are you sure your pics aren't 26 years old? That car looks NEW![:0] Good find! How's the power? [:p]

Yes, it certainly was a good find! The key is to take your time. I was especially looking for a US-spec 280E, which are RARE. But I find that with classic cars patience is definitely a virtue. Like I said, 5 years and change and boy have I seen some serious junk over those five years. The car now has a new RR quarter and taillight and rear bumper after an altrecation with a guardrail. It was done by a Mercedes dealer body shop who does wonderful work. I am very happy!

Oh, and the power is fine. It's nobody's rocket but gets out of its own way like it's supposed to. Not much you can do with 142hp in a big hunk of steel like a W123. Plus, the auto trans is no help, but what are you gonna do? I absolutely did not want a gray market car with all their issues.

Here is a pic from right after the accident. The pics earlier are after the repair.

Entschuldigen Sie, bitte, aber ich bin ein 200 verruckt! Sehen Sie allein doch!
Hey Tiger, does that car really have an airbag? And am I nuts or are those US-spec bumpers on a Euro-spec car?

His car is driving us all nuts, huh? [:D]

Now I'm confused, I think I remember it was a European-spec but it's their "thing" in Indonesia to install US bumpers (also helps in the parking lots).

Now, I get it! He must think it's a BMW 320i! That would explain the Munchen decal and I'm sure he does love beer!

P. S. This is an English forum, damnit!

No flyboyike, no, you're fine, it is US-spec bumpers on a Euro-spec car allright.

And no, my W123 has no airbag system[:)]
