Hi all im kev and recently acquired a primrose yellow W114 280CE coupe its not been on the road since 1990 !!! Its never been ran since then so need to fully check it all out before i try and get it running !! Ive heard some stories about the ECU's for these being expensive is this true ?? if they are it may end up on aftermarket management like omex or DTA or similar !!
Also other plans for the car are a set of MB late model alloy wheels, black number plates and possibly lowered suspension.

Is there any places you can advise for getting plans for these ??

Welcome to the forum, Kev.

Primrose yellow, eh? No wonder no one has had the courage to drive it since 1990 :lol:

AFAIK all Mercedes ECUs are expensive. I expect someone will be along soon who knows better than me. I just wanted to do the 'primrose yellow' joke ;)
