New here from forums.mercedesclub.org, same name on there....
My W124 coupe, whilst not completely dead, is beginning to fade. Pop in law is looking to get rid of his R reg 523i and after driving it 600 miles the other week, I realise the same sense of calm I had years ago when I had use of a 520i of the same era. I need to do some homework to suss out what the BMW engine codes mean though.
Also it claims to be doing an indicated 30 mpg combined, so it'll be cheaper to commute in than the Nissan.... Not to mention a good deal more comfortable !! Some coil packs are on the way out I suspect, loses power and hesitates sometimes. Switch off, back on again, problem disappears.
So, I may come back and confirm my legitimacy here. I hope this will be the case to be honest, because it is a lovely car and if you bunch of BMWs are as good a laugh as the bunch of Mercedesesesssesss; then its a double winner !!
