230e workshop manuals

I have been looking for a Haynes manual for my 230e but I see only 250/280 covered, and the others are Brooklands or Peter Russek - I have only ever found Haynes really useful. Do I buy the 250/280 version for all but the mechanicals and then a 124 version for that ?? any ideas ?

Wasn't there a Haynes manual on the 4 cyl W123's as well ?

I only ever had the 280E/CE/TE and my dad had a 250 so I never bought the other manual , but I'm fairly certain there was one , covering the 4 cyl petrols and the Diesels .

That Amazon one is the "best fit" for European models. [the brooklands books are often translations of GERMAN ORIGINALS] Together with the numerous free downloads of the USA factory manual to be found online you should be sorted. e.g. http://mb.bolinko.org/15/index.php?o...d=77&Itemid=50

Many thanks - I will probably get the Amazon one, but the online links look really useful too !
