  1. Power steering reservoir? Mine leaks and is the source of a huge mess
  2. Wow, thanks for some much needed inspiration. Btw, I've been driving for a few years now with only one e-code headlight glass I replaced one side shortly after getting the car and forgot all about it. Didn't realize they were different until the foggy weather just recently E-code side was definitely worse in the fog. I may have to change out for a pair of DOT ones...
  3. Yes, it was definitely right around that time; way back when, on craigslist. Hey maybe this is the same one with a blown engine... Found 850 in Langley. Previous owner had put the forged rods and stainless exhaust in... Luckily he had kids and a wife pressuring him to sell the car
  4. Very nice work. I want an awd wagon so bad...
  5. Few years ago I was going to buy a silver 850 awd WAGON with the M58. Luckily when I called it was already sold. Then the 850R /w M59 came up. I guess we are lucky in Canada for the slight differences in some models. I just drove the Mercedes over the weekend 105km trip. So much different driving a non-turbo car. Very satisfying to drive, especially staying in the 4000-7000 rpm rev range going some hills. Nice and smooth, good on the hwy. In Vancouver weather the monowiper is amazing. Although about half the power it is surprisingly quick off the line. Body rolls quite a lot in comparison. 190e is much more compact making the 850 feel a little chunky. I guess I have a thing for boxy sport sedans. I've been fortunate to be able to have my dream garage... Now just have to manage maintenance costs (x3) and finding parking all the time.
  6. Thanks!! Appreciate the comment. They all need work but do look decent from 5 feet away. Me too! The 780's are Swedish cars - Made in Italy.
  7. Damn very nice wagons!! And nice wheels. I don't have as impressive a fleet or photography skills... but here we go
  8. Winter wheels seem to be working well, except for a slight rub on dips. Only happens on the RH side for some reason. The rubbing doesn't happen with Volans, so maybe it is an offset difference and my spacer too big. Also as of today, I I have myself a German automobile
  9. Damn, I still really want a wagon... But too many cars already
  10. OK going to post one more... Sunlight looks a little better than fluorescent lighting Still bad cell phone camera
