Greetings my fellow Mercedes Benz owners!
My name is Victor and I would like to offer my repair services and share some knowledge earned over years working on my own and my clients Mercedes vehicles.
I am Mercedes Benz enthusiast who is not afraid to turn wrenches and get a dirty. Over years I had few Mercedes Benz vehicles for myself and as projects: 1988 420SEL w126, 1990 300E w124, 1992 500SEL w140, 1996 E320 w210, 1997 E320 w210, 2002 S500 w220. As of 2012 in the family we have 1999 ML430 w163, 1997 S320 SWB w140, 1997 C280 w202, 2000 S430 W220, and my current project 1991 500SL r129. I personally repair and maintain my family cars. And idea for website and offering repairs for MB came after I pretty much restored 1992 500SEL w140. W140 are very complex cars and one can be lost in electrical and mechanical problems these beautiful cars can experience.
My current W140: 1997 S320 SWB with 117.000 miles. Picture taken the day I went to look at it. Now it has S600 grill, carbon fiber covered door handles, HID headlight kit, Pioneer radio. Gave it to my mother and keeping it mostly stock.
My first W140- 1992 500SEL. Lots of hard work and parts went into this car to bring it back to its glory. Bought it not running with 150,000 miles. Chain skipped two teeth on driver side camshaft but didn’t bend valves, luckily. Detailed repairs are covered under “Me and my cars” section. Loved this car a lot!
My 1999 ML430. Bought it in 2008 with 129,000 miles. As of 7/2012 it has 192,000 miles. Runs strong, no major issues (knock on wood). 20” rims, ML55 OEM HID headlights, carbon fiber covered interior and exterior trim, Alpine in-dash DVD receiver, Pioneer component speakers, 12” subwoofer in sealed box, two amps under rear seat, smoked LED tail lights, smoked mirror and fender blinkers, three way doors insulation, LED illumination under seats, fog lights activated
Another project: 2000 S430 with 140k miles, picture taken first time I went to look at it. Bought this car not running with fresh water damaged computers, no start condition. AirMatic had some problems and radio. Cleaned main ECU and repaired TCM, car starts and runs fine. Sorted AirMatic leaking hose connector and bypassed D2B fiber optic on phone and voice control modules to have radio play. Next to do: repaint leather on hand rest, steam clean interior, modify OEM amplifier to accept aftermarket radio and retain Bose system, fog lights, headlights, possibly 18” rims
