Yes Truck, welcome.  Is that a picture of your car?  If not, what year/model do you have?

Hi Flint and welcome.

I think your the first Russian to join.  You mentioned ABS, you've also got a sunroof too yes?  Nice car.

Hope you find lots of information here. As I looked at your other sites I've wondered in the past how much information and knowledge specific to our cars is missed around the world due to language differences.  Thankfully there is a few people around that are multilinguists and bridge this gap.  Feel free to share anything you may have and vice-versa.

Are there many w116's  in your part of the world? I noticed on the MB club Russia site, Vad El, a nice black 116.  What model is that?

Wow, a spoiler would hide the rusty front valance on my 450SE...but then my wife and/or kids would rip it off on curbs and other obstructions and I would be right back where I started.  I have found that if I keep my cars looking a little disreputable the other drivers in the household won't drive them.  They can fight over the Kia and the Jeep.
