The forum sponsor sells them on CD-rom.
You will get a full Mercedes Workshop manual with it, which is the good bit.

The owners manual does not give you a lot of info.

Just give them a call. They respond a lot better to that.

Apparently, they don't have...?

Any other leads?

Hello to everyone!

I'm new to the forum and was looking for the same thing, user/owner/workshop manual for the finnie!
I have a 63 220S, M127. Who is the sponsor and how do I contact him? Does he still have the manuals?

many thanks for the help!

If MBSpares fall through:

There used to be a Star Parts manual on CD-rom, which I have.
They are no longer available.

Just made a copy for a guy in Canada.

Am willing to make some more.


They are PDF's of the Mercedes Workshop manual in English.


Send me a PM if interested.
