Thanks for the welcome guys. The car is from Sydney and had been there since being brought back from Hong Kong in 2000. The lady who brought it back sold it on to the guy I bought it from last year. The worst thing about it was the rust in the boot caused by the spoiler. As soon as I get a tute on loading I'll show those pics. It wasn't obvious until we went right through, it's all fixed now as is the high idle problem. I've also bought another Becker to go back in and replace the awful Pioneer thingy in there. The suspension and steering are all very tight.
The vacuum system is still ordinary and the interior is in need of a refit.
I've owned three other Mercs before a 380 SEL, a 230 E and a 300CE 24v. I loved them all but the 500 is THE one!
