"A must for any owner of a 126 chassis, especially 300SD." from SB in TX.
"Your site is really wonderful and your personal help is unsurpassed. Do you have a day job? It seems you are always available." from DM in Washington, DC.
"Next to a set of metric wrenches, www.pindelski.com is the most valuable tool for the Mercedes DIYer." from BWE in CA.
"I find your site to be unique in that you're very explicit about the repair procedures. You don't assume anything about the user's knowledge of the given subject matter. You provide detail information even down to the very useful practice of revealing what size bolts will be encountered." from FG in FL.
"There is a lot of free advice in cyberspace, and truly, you get what you pay for. T.P knows what he is talking about. His site provides clear, concise, accurate, step-by-step procedures that show you how to avoid commmon pitfalls and get the job done right. My new motto is "In Pindelski we trust". Thomas' site paid for itself many times over the first day I joined. He literally kept me from throwing up my hands and having the car towed into a shop." from PMI in CA.
"I'm happy to provide an endorsement of your site. I first came across your pictorials when you made them available through one of the enthusiast's forums. I was struck by the clarity of the photographs, and the thoroughness of the write up. I knew that what I was seeing was a labor of love. I was able to use your site to perform my own valve adjustments for the first time. Since then I have replaced my own motor mounts, air conditioner compresser and receiver/drier, oil cooler lines, front and rear brake pads and rotors, subframe bushing, as well as timing my injection pump. I also have performed all the routine maintenance called for on the vehicle. Prior to using your site, I farmed out anything more difficult than changing the fluids and filters. The modest expense has been repaid several times over. I know that you do not advocate this, but I truly feel than given the choice between the official manuals and your pictorials, I would without question rather have your pictorials." from TJ.
"Information about repairing Mercedes is difficult to find. Good information is even more difficult and this site does that. It is an excellent source for many of the most common repairs." from AC in CA.
"I own a 1983 300SD (300,000 miles) and a 500 SEL (216,000 miles) for two years now. Prior to the purchase of my MB W126 cars my mechanical experience with cars culminated in changing the oil and the odd battery. Thanks to the clarity and thoroughness of Thomas Pindelski's web site, I have not had to take either of the two cars to a qualified mechanic in those two years. After performing the suggested repairs, both cars are running markedly better than when I got them. Mr. Pindelski has also always been very helpful with questions I had. " DG from TX.
"I think that your web site is amazing. It is packed full of detailed information that assists the mechanic from beginner to advanced level while providing an invaluable resource for the owner, or potential owner, who wishes to discuss a Mercedes-Benz with his or her mechanic. " CL from WA.
"I can't think of anything I would like to change, add or delete as I think your site is brilliant. I don't know how you have the time to prepare and present such an easy to follow and comprehensive guide for Mercedes maintenance and repair. The information you give is invaluable. To have a mechanic to do all the maintenance and repair on these old cars would be cost inhibitive, I am fortunate indeed to have stumbled onto your most informative website. Congratulations." NM from Aus.
"Thomas, thanks for the opportunity to contribute to your very worthy site. I think your approach to servicing and repairing our cars is very practical and put in terms that don't require a person to be a master mechanic to get the job done. Your pictorials provide clear guidance on how to approach a project superior to the manuals available commercially." RS from MO.
"The $30 I spent on the subscription to this site is the best money that I have spent in years. The descriptions are well illustrated and written in clear nonambiguous language, with refreshing tidbits of humor. Thomas has a infectious discipline that has made me a better DIYer mechanic. Despite having all of the MB CD repair manuals for my MBs, being a member of several repair forums, having a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering and working for the Air Force Research Laboratory, these have beem immeasurably helpful. I appreciate the clever shortcuts, the humorous anecdotes, his explanations of the ambiguous, his pointing out when the manual is in error and his prompt answering of my questions about jobs not exactly in his site." JG from OH.
