    Can someone please explain the following, for a non techy person like myself that does not know what w123 w124 etc it is sometimes like watching charades..

    I figure these terms related to a type of model/engine? would be great for the non techie newbies if we could have a list?

    i believe that is just the model name - W123 is the older model-not a techie -but i think that is right.

    Thank the lord for grandkids. I always thought that LOL was "lots of love" In my defence, I do live in Brighton.
