Bernd,
This is a fantastic book!  I particularly enjoyed all the information you provided on the VIN and data cards.  I highly recommend this book to all W116 owners!

I've just finished the book (Kindle edition), and I must say I don't really share the enthusiasm. While the details on some of the more exotic conversions of the time were interesting and not common knowledge, there was not much new otherwise, and the subject matter just felt "glanced over" in most of the chapters.
