    no worries and its a good idea, to de-risk this I am using the battery out of my W140 S500 which is oversize, brand new and is removed from a working 140 to do this test!

    W208 wont turn or start, key issues?

    It’s not impossible but the ignition switch has been up to autotronics and they didn’t report any errors with it, How far away are you? I could collect if you were to be good enough to read my codes

    Armoured W126

    B6 means 7.62 NATO round, the armour should be around 1/4" thick, it doesnt state at what angle it achieved B6, it could be 30 degrees in which case it has thin light armour and is designed to deflect, obviously a 90 degre hit has a lot more force it needs to withstand, These could be the...
