Well, that's over....

You know that knocking sound I described yesterday that was coming from the front of the car? Here's a reminder. Scroll to the bottom of the last pic for a description.
Well, it appears that the problem was related to the steering and suspension and was a bit bigger than I thought. I was just driving down a straight smooth road in the pic below, when there was an awful clunk and bang, then the car suddenly swerved to the left, hit the left side embankment and spun a few times. The only thing good to come out of this is that the designers and engineers at Mercedes have done their job and kept me alive.

Unfortunately though, for one life to be saved, another had to be taken. After being together for less than 5 months, George is dead.
My Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 is gone. He's gone to the big workshop in the sky where oil and filter changes are done everyday and the only road travelled is an open highway.

Oh God, I miss it already!!!!
R.I.P George, my friend.
