I fitted my own to my 211 estate.
....... Bosal detachable £190 from P F Jones
....... Dedicated RightConnections 13pin electrics £104 from towequipe on ebay
Really wasn't too hard to do and then you know exactly what's been done.
using this vin decoder we can get the spec of the vehicle:
Checking VIN for Mercedes-Benz | CARInfo
We get the following info, about the car - quite a lot of detail on spec engine numbers, options etc. I'll see if I can translate a readable colour name out of it:
I saw that car talked about in the smoker barge thread on pistonheads. It's metalic silver according to the advert on autotrader and the DVLA have it as silver on the MOT history site. Though the advert also mentions it's a special order 'designo' colour.
If you can get the VIN from the dealer...
I enjoy watching it, I put on my tablet and watch it on the train during my commute. I do the same with anything car related because my wife doesn't enjoy car shows much so I wouldn't probably find the time to watch them otherwise.
It's strange, new series of F&L, wheeler dealers, car sos...
I have 3 sons, the middle one will be 4 just after Christmas.he is absolutely mad about wires, he spends hours arranging old usb bits and bobs, headphones, chargers and cables into long chains threading then behind cupboards and tables. It's an absolute nightmare when you need to find that...
I fitted a detachable bosal towbar to my 211 a couple of weeks ago, it doesn't look like yours though. The cross brace is less rounded. With this one the bumper reinforcement beam is reused, just mounted differently when you put it back on.
I spent more on the soundbar than I did on the TV and it is a great product. Yamaha YSP-2200 - it's discontinued now but replaced by the YSP-2500. The higher end bars have multiple speakers digitally driven and the amps configure themselves to your room so they can bounce the sound off the walls...
I remember you got in touch with me about my one, but it went before we got very far. I think you've done pretty well there, looks a fair bit cheaper than I got for mine in the end assuming the price on screen on the ad now was his "buy it now" level.
Seems there haven't been...
With heavy heart I am selling my 124. I've moved on to a 211 at the request of my family who want something with a more modern feel. I might regret this!

Cheers Ray, I re-read your 211 article in the tech section of the club's site before taking the plunge.
The value is an interesting bit. Right now, the advert says £2.2k. The one I responded to said £3950.00 and I paid something less but rather closer to that.
I'm not sure why the vendor...
