Lightbulb Correction

In the article, after stating which engine types are available, you said something along the lines of "besides the inline 4L, 5L, 6L engines there was also a V8"
... I think you meant 4 cyl. , 5 cyl, or 6 cyl.

Just FYI

You go into depth with the W210 AMG modifications, but mention nothing of the W124 AMG "Hammer" V8 variant. Nor the 500E, either, the first MB factory V8-engined W124, developed in a unique collaboration with Porsche, which hand-assembled 10,500 examples.

Several of these articles also list a wide selection of "Volts" that were supposedly available.

"...with 10, 16, 18, 20 or 24, 32 Volts..."

Either I've missed something over the years about the "12 volt" (6-cell. 13.8v) standard, or it's the wrong word. ;-)
2008 E350 4Matic
MB Canada MY08 spec: 952 Sport Pkg, 954 Avantgarde Line, MPP Premium Pkg, 755 Tenorite Grey Metallic, 821 Black Leather, 732 Black Bird's Eye Maple Wood, 413 Panoramic Sunroof, heated 4 seats & steering wheel, PPRS. CPO with 24k km (= 15k miles) in summer 2011

2004 C240 4Matic (gone)
1999 C230 Kompressor sedan 'Classic' trim (long gone) - New in 1999, this cost the same as the '08 E350 CPO (above) did in 2011.

in the W 123 article it states
The updated styling of the Mercedes-Benz W123 featured horizontal oriented, quad unequal-sized headlights
This is not correct, the w123 did not have quad headlights, it had only two, with smaller fog/driving lights inboard.
