116benz, I just leaked again. :D

Who's in for an Aus group buy.  A shipload of containers and bring 'em back here.  The lot, w116's and the rest.  Some nice looking rims amongst 'em I noticed.

What's the story, is it a wreckers or what?

They are not cheap, apart from the gold 100.00 euro one which could be a typo.

Wonder how they compare to our ebay bargains.

hmmmmmmmmm....  293 km – ca. 2 uur 41 min, maybe quicker if there's autobahn without the 130km restriction

Very competitive prices they have there imho, however you seem to have to log in to get further information about particular cars, as if they only trade with dealers? Must get one of my German speaking friends to check out the site.

Cam (as in racing Cam  ;D ) I say we need to pull off another team effort- if you know what I mean. ::)

We'll all take a trip to Germany (each of us will take a passenger- they will be the secondary drivers), along with all our W116's. Block the streets...we go from there. :o

Word Brother!!
I was gonna suggest the same thing!  ;)

Un-believable.  2000 Euro, what's that equate to?  Bout 5-6K Australian?
They all look in tip top condition!  I guess we haven't seen the interiors, but if it's in Germany you can be sure that they've been looked after with the usual Deutsches Efficiency!!  :)
