    I was surprised when the dealer offered lifetime Powertrain warranty. My mom doesn’t keep vehicles long but she gives them to my dad who drives them into the ground.

    Convinced my mother to order an Explorer ST. It should be coming in next week. It’s stupid that an Explorer can get up to $60k.

    I have ordered from rock auto for my 335xi and they have been the correct ones so I don’t know why they can’t get your car correct. ECS tuning has a sale going on right now.

    Another non audio related note, the early 380s had a single row timing chain that was very problematic. They did not last long before they needed to be service or even worse, breaking. This car was converted to a dual row timing chain by a Mercedes Benz dealership when it was a couple of years old. The dual row is a much better design and can go much longer between service intervals.

    I recently purchased a MB SL380 for my wife for her birthday just recently. The previous owner "upgraded" the stock radio but putting in a basic cd player about 10 years ago and decided not to replace the 4" speakers in the dash but rather install some 6X9 in the space behind the rear seats. The plan is to install a new retro sound headunit with bluetooth capabilities, replace the 4" speakers with some upgraded stock replacements, and install a SSA four channel amplifier to power the speakers. In the near future I would like to install a small subwoofer in the trunk for some lows, the 4" speakers are going to provide anything below 100hz. Pictures posted below in the next post, here is a link to the new headunit: https://www.retromanufacturing.com/products/1981-85-mercedes-benz-380-series-hermosa-radio?rq=yr_1981~mk_mercedes-benz~md_380-series&variant=11408386371
