An instagram post by Mick Harvey (an ex Bad Seed) and his cat laying on his W116. Couldn't post a screen shot because attaching pictures is murder with this site. Even resizing didn't work.

thats a 123 dude, it has the trim on the C pillar!

who is mick harvey sorry?

attaching pics is really frustrating. i usually email them to my phone, which can compress them easily and then send them to the PC im doing a post on!

I used the trim on mine to finish off the vinyl roof. No idea when the vinyl was put on and was going to remove but have got to like it. Previously the trim used was not good and then I saw a 123. it just fits and finishes it off very well.

very interestsing Marku, so the contour of that bit fits on the 116?! I have only seen one vinyl roof 116 here in Perth in 20 years, a blue one with a white vinyl!

I must be too old Harv to understand the music scene..

Yes fits well a little problem where it goes behind the vents but with a bit of adjustment I can live with it. Interested to see how the one you posted managed it. Photo of mine doesn't show it very well and doesn't have the coloured insert yet. But a big improvement on previous.

the first car with the cat on the boot is still a W123, look at the first aid kit. on the W116's it sits more to the right side.

Some cars/colours suit the vinyl roof, that blue w116 looks awful to me....

no 116 suits a vinyl roof!

Well I wasn't keen at first but I quite like it now. Certainly colour has to be right and it was very popular here in the 70s. There was a Mk2 Jaguar on TV here that had one. That didn't look good being black over dark red and I don't think the blue 116 with white doesn't look good either.
