Facebook W116 groiup
« on: 14 March 2021, 03:23 PM »
Is anybody here on it, or vice versa?  I look at it in my FB feed from time to time.  The quality of technical discourse often seems pretty low.    Or maybe they consider W116.org a highfalutin elitist engineers group?  Just curious if anybody has any perspectives on it. Cheers,

I'm on it, but I can't say I found anything interesting there. A bunch of ppl posting pics they find on the net and of course almost zero technical knowledge. Most of the replies are either "how much" or another picture of some beat up 116 on non original gawdy wheels. But most of the FB MB groups are that way, what started off as an internet forum killer turned into a zoo really fast (just like instagram).

I just had a qiuck look.  Most of their cars seem to be pimped out - ridiculous wheels, silly chrome, goofy aero work.  God save us.
