MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 bodywork question Dented front passenger quarter panel

My mother-in-law hit my parked car Grrrr. I checked for quarter panels on car-part.com and found one in my color for 350. Unfortunately they are welded on - not bolted on. So there goes the DIY. Im going to schedule an appt next week with an auto body shop to get an estimate. Before I do that does anyone have any thoughts on how much something like this should cost I dont mind spending my MILs money

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Spring Coils dilemma - HELP PLEASE

So I decided to improve the ride comfort of my inherited E320 (1998 - Chassis 210.065) by replacing the front arm bushing balls joints anti-sway bar links and the rear away bay links and rear bar bushings with the replacement of the OEM shocks with KYB Gas-a-justs (KG 4742 & KG 4743).

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G A question about Gs on the Rubicon

When folks talk about having done the Rubicon in their Gs with mild lift and 33 tires does that mean the WHOLE Rubicon gatekeeper sluices all the hardedst stuff in there And how much driving vs winching Ive never been to the Rubicon and dont really have an interest. But I just wonder how the G compares to other vehicles on the Rubicon and the first thing to know is what is meant when someone says they did a trail. Help me understand. -Dave G.

Firstly whilst the Merc parts are expensive they do fit the real skill is in dismantling the seams to remove the old panels.and reassebly so it lines up as it should.

intercoolers or more precisely radiator type intercoolers are fitted to the more powerful engines. so with a 638 (upto 2004) the 108cdi and 110cdi generally do NOT have intercoolers but the 112 etc DO have intercoolers. if you buy a 110cdi and remap it you are likely to exceed the power of a 112cdi... this will mean it will run hot and an intercooler must be recommended. there is little difference

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 OT But A Good Word for The Wise Buyer - Run CarFax Everytime

Yes a couple of weeks ago I was buying a 2003 New Beetle Convertibe with 12K for my wife. The car drove very well though I could feel a tinge of an unusual vibration over bumps. Everything was fine but I held off on writing a check pending a CarFax report knowing fuul well that CarFax will not tell me all.

Because of legal issues I am very surprised that a dealer would in any way suggest that a used vehicle had no damage. I am absolutely flabbergasted that a dealer would œguarantee that it was damage-free by selling it under a certified program. While the car sales profession is not known for its integrity one of the things that almost immediately get a salesperson fired is making any sort of guarantees

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 i need help with my 2003 e500 mercedes

Hey everyone this is my first post. I own a platinum blue 2003 e500 sport with only 27500 miles on it.. garage kept throughout the years and I bought it from an older man. Now unfortunately I parked it the other night on a corner in New York and left it to find the right rear right side impacted. The whole right rear light is hanging and broken.. the part above the weel is indented about 1 foot width

At least 2-3k USD is a fair guess but I am thinking it could hit 4-5k USD depending on how many new parts are needed. And you really want a top notch shop on this job. They should equal the quality of the MB factory paint. Ideally they should order the paint from MB. There are other high quality paints on the market but nothing like the OEM stuff IMO. From the sound of it there will be most of that rear quarter car painted to blend into the lines of the bodywork if it is done right.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C II 203 Totaled C230 Sportcoupe

Hey everyone as some of you know I was rear ended again on the 12th. The guy hit me going nearly 55MPH and my vehicle was pushed into the vehicle in front of me. So there is some major rear end damage and a decent amount of front end damage. Insurance decided to make the vehicle a total loss instead of doing repairs. I do have the option to buy the vehicle back from them for a little less than 2000

That doesnt seem like a great idea but hey with some backyard bodywork this thing could probably be on the road for another 2k of junkyard parts. A couple of junkyards have C230 coupes in red with good rear clips a couple with good front clips. I wouldnt want to drive it around like that since you can pick up an un-crashed one for 8k if you look around long enough but if he really wanted to do it its possible.

Man Im sorry to see that. But rather than relegating it to the junkyard (parting out first or not) its far better to be fixed as little as possible and then driven if you can swing what you need with your brother making payments that would be one way to go. The danger though is that there may be damage to parts that doesnt show up and it could create a perilous situation. I think it would be smart

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 1976 450SLC - cost of bodywork What would you do

Worst week ever On my way to catching a plane for a business trip last week I wrecked my 76 450SLC. You may have seen her on ebay a year or so back I snagged her locally (Austin TX) at a fair price and have been loving here ever since. Havent taken her anywhere for estimates to get the full extent of the damage. Before I do just curious from any other SL SLC owners out there - worth it or not Ill

There are several variables that should be looked at first Do you have full coverage insurance on your SLC and how much is it worth to you to keep it are the first things I think of. Depending on parts replacing a fender headlight hood & grille will run from 3000 to 8000. Big range I know but new OE parts are super expnsive for the 107 now. Do you have a replacement car in mind and what will it cost

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 Rear Wheel arch liners

Anyone know if the latest rear wheel arch liners are still made of what looks like furry cardboard or if they are now plastic and therefore waterproof like the fronts Asking as the parts list now shows them as CO Black parts so maybe they were upgraded for that model Otherwise any thoughts on making them waterproof Was shocked to see how soggy they still were 2 or 3 days after a short run in some light rain

Hi Rudeney I must learn to make myself clearer on this Forum I did say what looks like furry cardboard Im sure they are man made but of what Im not sure.

The first problem that arises is enrichment....even with installing a computer controlled EFI you still need to get the AFRs correct or else you destroy the engine with a lean mix. The chassis will handle about 450HP as well as the 722.3 auto box. AMG reached these levels with the 6.0 DOHC M117 but also used a modified 126 rear subframe. A five speed manual in a hunkered down car exacerbates the problem as the drive train wasnt designed for weight transfer and sudden high torque application. Without bodywork you cant run larger sticky tires and even if you read Romans threads youll see most of his timed runs are rolling start or at speed. No 14 ETs or traps yet seen as well as no dyno graph just a printout. Based on his power he should be running 9 ETs and 150 trap. The 5-link just isnt capable. As far as almost 10K rpm out of a M103 call me skeptical. Not a doubter more a realist. All the power in the world means no power if you cant transfer it to the road surface with traction and not breaking anything. The 124 has its limitations and if you arent familiar with them you will spend much time and money and never achieve reliability. Years ago there was an old saying Speed costs money how fast do you want to go What do you expect or be satisfied with as far as acceleration in a modified 124 Ed A.

I have at present over 1000HP and Ive driven since April without any problems full throttle every day. Well see how long 1000hp will last. Maybe there is a reason why we get foreign customers all the time from different parts of the world whos sending their cars. Because mercedes concept with a lot of HP realy works
