    Hi everyone, Im new on here but a long time owner of older Benzes, most modified perhaps not to everyones taste:D
    I used to have a w123 coup I saved from death and turned into a euro 'lowrider' on hydraulics, featured in Mercedes enthusiast (which probably made for some interesting discussion:)) and Max power. I ve also owned a string of w201's, w126 and my favourite the w124.

    Im a techie at an M.B main dealership and have worked at an M.B specialist down under and other dealers so kinda live and breathe m.b's :rolleyes:

    Anyway my current daily is a rather humble w124 220e which despite being one owner, low miles and absolutely mint I picked up for a pocket money due to a blown head gasket.
    I couldnt leave it standard so It has a fairly severe lowering job, mirror polished 8.5jx17 w211 'Ankaa' wheels with 20mm rear spacing ( yes it needed tyre stretch and arch rolling!), U.S spec boot and front bumper panel and retro window deflectors. I also swapped the blue cloth for a blue leather interior and it has facelift lights. Apart from a stainless exhaust ive just purchased off the bay thats it for now:eek:

    Welcome to the forum mate, I like old cars too, hence my S124 wagon but I get my berries off getting/keeping the car as standard as possible, but still appreciate modified's/customs/moderns, soooo can't help being a petrol head! Stav
