I have owned this car for about 1 year. Before that it was owned by an older woman who drove it very lightly. I bought it after doing a lot of research on the most solid cars to convert to run on wvo. I have decided that I need a truck. These are great cars (famous w123 class). I have been from Washington to Missouri twice in this car in the past 6 months. It had no problems on either trip.
It has a Greascar kit that was professionally installed. I have been very picky about only running well filtered oil with no water. I change my own filters regularly and oil every 3000 miles. I rate the cosmetic condition at 7/10 and drivetrain at 8/10
New:
Injectors
Ball joints and Idler Arm
OEM hydraulic fluid and filter
Fuel lines
Spindle, bearings, races and seal on front drivers side
Trailer hitch 2"

I recently had it to a Mercedes mechanic to have it the valves adjusted and he said that it has more power than most of the older diesels he has seen. This is what he recommended to do. 
Motor mounts
Transmission mount
Auto shift bushing

Other know issues:
Door check strap needs replaced (back right door is stuck shut)
Troubleshoot door lock vacuum leak (have power door lock vacuum line capped off)
Cruise control is temperamental (does not work about 1/3 of the time) 
Small rust spots near back wheel wells
Small dent above fuel filler door

Mercedes mulling Renault-based entry-level X-Class?

Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:00:00 EST

Somewhere in between the Smart brand and the all-new A-Class (pictured above), Daimler is said to be readying a smaller entry-level product for the Mercedes-Benz brand to compete with models like the Audi A1. According to AutoBild, Mercedes-Benz will get a new hatchback based on a platform from its recent partnership with Renault-Nissan, and it could be called the X-Class.
Expected to debut by 2018, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class could be offered in sedan, hatchback and crossover variants, and it would likely have a starting price below the $20,000-euro mark. Power would come from either a 1.0-liter inline three-cylinder engine or a 1.5-liter inline-four, and the car would likely be built in a low-cost nation in order to make the financials work. Wearing the Mercedes-Benz name, the X-Class would have to exhibit more distinguishable luxury and styling to set itself apart from the models that helped provide its underpinnings.

Mercedes-Benz introduces new heavy security M-Class Guard model

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 08:44:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a new addition to the company's line of personal security vehicles. The M-Class Guard features bullet-proof side windows made with special laminated glazing and a polycarbonate inner layer to protect occupants from shards of glass. Mercedes says the M-Class Guard meets protection level VR4 according to the Bullet Resistant Vehicles 2009 standards, based on testing from the independent Ulm-based Ballistics Bureau, which means it can withstand .357 Magnum and .44 fire from multiple angles. It can also stand up to the DM51 hand grenade when equipped with optional floor armoring. Why skimp?
Buyers looking for protection from the world's literal slings and arrows can opt for the ML350 BlueTEC with its 258 horsepower 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine. With 457 pound-feet of torque, the oil-burner should have no trouble hustling the privileged class about. Of course, the ML500 offers a bit more punch courtesy of a 4.6-liter twin-turbo V8 with 408 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. Prices start at 105,050 euros for the diesel and 118,650 euros for the V8. You can check out the full press release below for more information.

Porsche teams with Delta airlines to woo VIP passengers

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 18:15:00 EST

The next time you're waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, see if you can spot a Porsche Cayenne or Panamera zipping between aircraft on the busy tarmac. The high-performance German vehicles aren't there practicing for an upcoming autocross; they are tasked with whisking some of the airline's most important customers between flights so they can keep their busy schedules intact.
Launched nearly two years ago, the program has proven popular with the automaker, airline and passengers as all benefit from the unique arrangement. Atlanta-based Porsche is able to showcase its cars to Delta's frequent-flying Medallion members, the airline is recognized for providing unusual perks to its high-value customers and those fortunate enough to be surprised with a quick lift are able to make connections without a stressful run through the terminal. Based on its success, the airline is rolling our similar programs in New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis this month.
And don't think Porsche is the only automaker working with an airline to entice its frequent flyers. Mercedes-Benz ran a program over the summer that offered purchasing and leasing incentives to MileagePlus Premier members of United Airlines, and the two are currently shuttling top fliers around Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the automaker's S-Class and GL-Class models.
