    Forgot about these... I have two R129 hardtop stands but no R129, so they must go. One is an Inka stand just like the ones on Ebay (I can't seem to get a link uploaded I'm afraid) which I only used for about a month, then dismantled and put back in the box. The other one is almost...

    Old R129

    It'is an older girl 1992, 125K on the clock - sometimes when I try to "give it some beans" it seems to have a problem getting into revs, it sounds as the fuel pump straggles with fuel delivery. Don't get me wrong when I drive, it goes pretty well but from time to time when I want to...

    R129 used parts prices

    I often have a little trawl through ebay having a look at R129 parts for sale as much out of curiosity as anything else.

    R129 SL front bumper mounting?

    Last night I reversed into a parking area and there was what I thought was a very shallow drop. Despite going very slowly it turned out to be enough to catch the trailing edge of my front bumper. It not only caused minor damage to the bumper but pulled out one of the push pin fixings. When I...
