Re: Miles or kilometres?

I do wish people would check their spelling and vocabulary when they advertise a product!

Gross errors, like those in this ad, detract from the item om sale making me think "BS, this seller is a...

Re: Clutch or slave cylinder problems with Malaysian build 280S

I'd go with you on that one. I've had to change the cylinder (on the side of the gearbox) due to this very issue. Fluid started to seep past the seals. Fortunately, I was at home when it started to...

Re: W116 on Brazilian TV

TBH, I watched it with the sound OFF! So I haven't a clue about the dialogue and, yes, the obivious Rio imagery. Brazilian TV does get exported worldwide so the best scenery has to be sold too.

Re: W116 on Brazilian TV

Yes they do, towards the end and just before the character played by Suzana Vieira gets intimate with her driver...thus the need to show the W116!
Go to about 4 mins and you start to see teasing...

W116 on Brazilian TV

There is a new mini-series on Brazilian TV about women over 50 who refuse to 'lay down and get old'. I haven't seen it myself but one of the characters played by Suzana Vieira has a W116!

Re: MB Enthusiast

That's right. I think it was in the July edition...which I don't have!
It was a letter in defence of the W116.

MB Enthusiast

the January 2010 edition of Mercedes-Benz Enthusiast will cover not one but TWO W116s! If I am not mistaken a 280 and a 450, both SEs.

Looks like it'll be a good read for us W116 fans. :)

Re: Citroen XM

Over here, Brazil, both the Citroen and Peugeot ranges have become extremely popular. The Citroens with their 'jelly mould' designs are as quirky as ever but seen as a real alternative to the...

What to look out for?

I have decided that my affair in the W124 world must come to an end. After a rather expensive foray into the world of 'newer' Mercedes cars. I have come to the conclusion "they really didn't make...
