    (Some bad language) Video captures astonishing 40-minute stand-off between obstinate Mercedes drivers that holds up huge queue of traffic | UK | News | London Evening Standard I think the old guy was a bit confused. Poor chap. :(

    ...and it just blinking well breezes right through it and passes. Not one single advisory. :thumbs: Whether you like Mercs or not (and I'm not that hung up on all of them), that's quite impressive given its age, and it is the third MOT this Mighty One Ninety has walked through since I owned it...

    So, Kent Bergsman is a Mercedes expert. He's like a kind uncle talking you through your Mercedes, what goes wrong and how to fix it. He's a bit of a legend in MB circles. But...he loves his Alfas, too. :thumbs: Check this out: Take these two videos...

    If you own an old car - no matter who made it - you need to expect the odd problem if you use it as a daily runner. While these problems are frustrating, they are often a bit baffling if - like me - you're an automotive dunce and can't work out the link between cause and effect. You scratch...

    As if anymore proof of the W123's rugged longevity was required, it exists fictionally in Mad Max 4. No idea what role it plays, but that it still survives in such a dark, dystopian world, is oddly reassuring, should we ever get into such a mess that results in the world Mad Max lives in. :lol...

    There is a chap called Kent Bergsma who is a bit of a God among owners of older Mercs for his excellent DIY videos on YouTube. He knows his Merc onions and he delivers his knowledge in that reassuring way that suggests no problem is too big to solve. I don't know how many vids he's made, but...

    Hi guys, Came off the A127 at dunton and some fool in a merc thought I wasn't going quick enough at 60mph and decided he would overtake me on the chevrons, showering the car in stones! So thanks to him I now have a prominent chip In the front bumper and loads of little chips in my windscreen...

    I'm sure there are alot more info to be shared on here than trying to phone dealerships. So I bought the wife a manual B class Merc (1st gen). Day after owning it the clutch slave cylinder (that I suspect) started leaking. Back to the dealer. It is now at Merc with it's engine removed ...

    ...........front pads & a brake hose.:lol::thumbs: I didn't think they were that worn from yesterdays inspection, but wasn't aware there was a min depth. 17 yrs old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll bet there are far younger cars with a far list of fail issues & advisories.

    It may have had a fair lick of speed, but my mum's 280TE was quite placid compared to this: Legendary Diesel Mercedes W123 + SCANIA turbine @ Eastern European Drift Championship - YouTube :lol:

    The cheek of it! You buy a reliable car, and 18 months later, it throws a hissy at you. Rude! :lol: Greeted me with an intriguing chirping noise that rose with engine revs a week back, which would sometimes be joined by what's best described as 'an almighty clattering noise'; Mr Merc Mechanic...

    Well, we jumped in the 350 quid merc on Thurs and cruised to the tunnel. On the other side the old merc glided comfortably all the way down, round the periphique to our Fave place in "Nation". Had a great time, but as we have done all the usual haunts many many times, we went looking at some of...

    Watcha think? Good looking car in a brutally vulgar way, i'd certainly like to drive one to see if the reviews are accurate about driving dynamics.

    The Mighty One Ninety has endeared itself to me. It has impeccable roads manners, is quite clearly autobahn trained and it has that 'i'll get you home, come hell or high water' feeling of robustness to it. Which got me thinking. In Germany, classic cars - like an E-Type - are called 'old...
