Hello 116's,

Just a quick message from a new member.  My name is Carl Jones, I'm in Melbourne, been around Mercedes-Benz's in the past but not for sometime 

Does anyone know of this 6.9 for sale in NSW:

Any stories I should know about?  I am casually looking for one, but it has to be reasonably nice.

I am an experienced tyre tester so if I can help anyone with a tyre question, fire it at me!

Thanks for any information,

Regards,

Carl.

OK, just read the section, "Unwanted 6.9 for sale" so I feel a little more informed now!



Regards,

Carl.

Hi Styria,

How are things. Got the car yesterday. Is at my mechanic now. Dont think it has been driven for years. The mechanis could only get it to sdtart by poring fuel down the air filter. Smoke and fire and embers were coing out the exhaust. Hope my mechanic is ok and did not fumigate himself. Some bastard stole the dash mat and someone put a scratch down the side of the car.....Not Happy :'( well the car does not seem to have any rust.It seems so clean I am amazed considering the k's its done. How long do 6.9 engines last? before they need to be rebuilt>

Hi Carl, I do think that you should also speak to Andreas-he has just bought a 6.9 and he is a member on the forum. Regards, Styria

Thanks Styria,

I just PM'd Andreas.  No wonder the car is still for sale, the dealer hasn't returned my call or email about the car.  Clearly, they are not interested in selling it.

Regards,

Carl.
