Default 6.9? Why do people do this?

Have a look at this 116 on ebay!

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Mercedes-Benz...QQcmdZViewItem

I wonder what it really is.

Well it must be worth that just for parts.
Not surprised he has exhaust and ball joint problems after what he has done to that.

Regarding the owner may I quote the great Cybil Fawlty, "I have seen more intelligent creatures lying on their backs at the bottom of ponds".

Your (or my) idea of vandalism passes for what I believe to be 'cool' amongst certain spotty yobs.

Hi JohnS, I guess each one of us has a magic button somewhere. If you can find it, and press it hard enough, you will normally get some reaction - more often than not, whatever turns them on.

I admit to not quite not being able to follow this owner's rationale, but if you were to go to Canberra's Summernats, you would find a staggering array of personal expressions of desires and achievement. Regards Styria

I saw this and noticed the engine size (6 litre) as being curious. Later on it says it's a 6 cylinder so I'd say it is a 280SEL unless there's been an engine transplant. No matter what a car is, I just hate when there's no engine pics. How can I window shop when there's no engine pics!

I think you're probably right, a trashed 280 for $1,500 is no bargain.
If it was a 6.9, maybe, and good for parts, but I can't even be bothered emailing the question.
It all looks a bit dodgy.

No way Nutz, anyone that can trouble shoot D jet and K jet as quickly as you has a license to mod his cars as he chooses.
