    560 m117 engine variations

    Just a follow up on this. I've been searching around now that i know it's the cruise control actuator and found out it's different because this model has got the ASR option fitted. Also you're apparently probably better not having it as it's more trouble than it's worth. This guy on another...

    560 m117 engine variations

    Thanks Jaymanek that the one... Also do you know why this one looks different (larger) to all the others i've seen in SEC's, is it a after market replacement or is it taken from another model? Is it a bad thing?

    560 SEC- Opinions- Anyone know or been to see this car?

    Yeah that doesn't look too good, though the website of the dealer looks quite impressive. VIP Car sales Its one of those names that makes it almost impossible to search for anything about them using google because of the ambiguous nature of the words in the company name it brings back all...

    560 SEC- Opinions- Anyone know or been to see this car?

    I think nearly all car dealers have some bad feedback on ebay, I imagine its a minefield selling as well as buying cars on there... Also not sure that a 2 year warranty is worth the paper its written on with a car that old.

    560 SEC badge postion??

    Its amazing how many are in the higher position maybe 50% and like i said it doesn't appear to be model or year related, it just seems difficult to believe so many bodyshop guys or owners would make a school boy error like that.

    SUPERB 560 SEC WITH EVERY EXTRA IN IMMACULATE CONDITION | eBay This 560 has been knocking around for months now and has been reduced quite a bit recently, before i think it was nearly 10 grand! I still think its still overpriced at £7,500 though i'm starting to think about going to have a...

    560 SEC badge postion??

    Hi I've been looking at a lot of SEC's lately and have noticed there is a variantion in the position of the rear boot/ trunk badge and doesnt seem to be year specific. Some have it much lower and closer to the chrome boot strip... The question is, is there a right and wrong...

    560 m117 engine variations

    Hi I'm looking looking at buying a 560 SEC and just have a few questions regarding the engine change over. One car i'm looking at is a 1988/89 F reg when i've compared the engine to a 1990 model G reg theres noticeable differences in some components and layout under the bonnet. I presume...

    I was just joking and playing on the whole yorkshire tight **** reputation, probably should have added some emotions ;) Well realistically it wont be used that much maybe 40-50 miles pw average and also i travel a lot so i'll do maybe 4 trips to heathrow every year, it'll be worth it just for...

    The Journey starts here...

    A maximum of 10 grand if its a special one, though obviously the cheaper the better. There is one black one in autotrader now, well its been there for months and has been discounted a few times in recent weeks. I'm thinking of going to have a look in the next week as its getting into a more...

    The Journey starts here...

    I thought trying to avoid depreciation and getting cheap road tax/ insurance would be all the credentials I'd need to prove my Yorkshire genes are pure. Plus i'll probably only drive it 10-20 mile a week for 6 months a year to keep the fuel costs down...

    The Journey starts here...

    Thanks guys, I have been reading a lot about SEC's maybe too much. The more i read the more unsure I'am... Not a bad thing as its stopped me jumping in feet first and buying a few piles. I've been reading a insightful blog by a Finnish guy Juha about living with a SEC, its a worthwhile read if...

    I think I want a 560 SEC...

    It appear that we are both chasing the same car and with a similar budget. Though now I've made the decision that i want one there doesn't seem too be many nice ones for sale... The ones i've seen have all been rough, bad colours, velour interiors or have cheap AMG kits on.
