I was there yesterday, showing my E320 Coupe with the PistonHeads group.
Fantastic show, with so much to see! I can't believe how it has grown in recent years.
We were so lucky with a one day break in the weather.
I'll certainly be booking our PH stand again next year :rock:
A little off topic, this being about the Brabus.....
While seeing it for sale for such a long time, price moving up and down like a yo-yo, I've often wondered why someone would have gone to all the effort to repair the car with a Brabus bodykit, but use the wrong headlight glass for one...
It's just a guess, but it could possibly this one which has been for sale in Ireland recently:
560 SEC 6.0 Widebody
Not many around, and that car has been up for a while. Perhaps the owner is trying their luck at auction.
To find, 5th of May seems a long way away!
The auction is...
Off topic, but is your car from the IAA Frankfurt auction last year? I noticed the COYS window sticker in one of your photos.
I had a good nose around one, and a silver SL73 while I was there. They both looked stunning under the lights :D
I remember this car being for sale a few years ago on E&M. It had the same level of detail.....photos and description are identical from what I remember. Because of this lack of detail, I, too, am sceptical that the car is complete conversion.
I believe Brabus did a TT back then. It would be...
As well as the saloon for sale in the other recent thread, here are a couple more 124 Twin Turbo conversions (one Mosselman, one Turbo Technics by Hughs), both in coupe form.
The photos could be better quality, with an added engine shot.
Hughes TT Conversion: It has an updated...
I thank you for your further reply, albeit again in public. I am pleased to at last read timely communications :)
I mention the black verses gold mounts as you say there were "full photos showing each component". It clearly is a stock photo from your own library, as it was not...
I just saw this on Pistonheads: Used 1991 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 for sale in Peterborough | Pistonheads
Amazing condition, low miles, mostly Main Dealer (a supplying dealer) service history, a superb example!
Pretty well priced considering the current climate and the above!
I am pleased to see Phil has now replied, so thank you :)
I read your extensive run down of events from your point of view, but it is perhaps unsurprising in this scenarios that unfortunately they do not entirely correlate with my recall.
I have the message and email contacts from the time...
I made a point of not going in to specific details, as I don't want this thread to become a public argument - the original purpose of this thread was to prompt Phil to respond to repeated contact attempts.
I received the reply (be it rather curt), so it worked in that respect. However he has...
