    And someone from Wales was selling my long-scrapped W124 using this pic they must have pulled off Google. Complaints to Ebay that it was a scam never got any response. :dk:

    It was SilberGruen (SilverGreen) 861: which was supposed to have been discontinued in 1980, however the car was 1986 and I re-painted it in Sept 2001 and that was the original colour which I ordered.

    As an aside, I was cutting back the lacquer when the 9/11 news came over the radio and I dropped everything and ran along to my mates house to watch the unfolding horror on Sky. You know how they say you will always remember where you were when it happened? :(

    I never said that.:D

    But I've owned two of the things and one 211 and I know which drives nicer and gives a more rewarding and peaceful driving experience. Handles better, corners better, and stops way, way better and gives 40mpg without too much effort.

    So here's one for all you 124 aficionados.

    Ok, it's got an LPG filler, 16" CLK rims and a facelift bonnet, but who's going to spot the other anomalies?

    I thought that too, but then realised they are shaped like that anyway, but these are painted body colour.

    I'll bet those little rear spats are off a SAAB though.

    DM wins. Sill covers are standard facelift but the drivers mirror is from the passenger side of a LHD car. I never did figure why the made the drivers side smaller.

    The passenger side mirror is smaller/narrower because you gain a wider field of vision anyway due to it being further away.
