Default Re: W116 Advertising & Press Releases

I wonder where all this finished up in the end ? If for no other reason, I thought that rekindling interest in our Ch. 116 cars by means of the article is a great idea. Pity we don't hear much from Mark these days - I know he sold two of his 6.9s, but there still has to be some sort of follow up story on this other cars.

I do know that, for whatever reason, he has been advertising the 420SEL he bought from me - it had been a great car but the broken chain guide did its job in ruining the left bank of the engine. Regards Styria

As I get older, I seem to have even less time for things! Sorry it's been such a long time; to add to my woes my computer died and it's taken 6 months to recover something that barely works properly. So much for Windows backup...

Facebook seems to have taken over peoples interests (including mine). However I still think there's a place for these forums since they're the best source of information by far.

Sorry about your computer.
Technology these days is sometimes so good that things can be recovered rather easily.

Good luck

Generally yes but in my case no.... A power feedback triggered a host of failures and I probably would've been better to cut my losses & just buy a new one!

I'm still trying to track down more info on this thread and I still have a few leads to follow. I tried Facebook but haven't had any luck so far.
