Hi to everyone
I’m a recently retired doctor.
I’ve owned a 1990 320 Cabriolet since 1993. Pictures attached. It’s been polished to within a whisker of its life, and used mainly In the dry . I also have had motorbikes and various Landcruisers to spread the load. I’ve finally got the time to do a couple of jobs on it ( and a decent garage at last) so will be asking a few questions from you bunch of experts.
Anyway, I’d just like to put it out there regarding those for sale adverts where the vendor states ‘ previous owner a doctor’ . Always makes me laugh. Most of my colleagues didn’t know their arse end from the front end of a spanner if you’ll pardon my vernacular, and they are the tightest bunch of gits you’re ever likely to meet. So their cars were generally disaster zones. Steer clear is my advice.
The other thing is after 35 years of doctoring I’m fed up with people telling me their very boring trivial symptoms.
Now it’s my turn for some retribution . Hope you all don’t mind me asking a lot of questions about the car. I’m intending to go through the suspension renewing the bushes, shocks, springs etc, because it’s never been done. Also, have an annoying issue for the past 20something years with it nearly stalling from pick up.
First question... where do I get the Lemforder Mondeo drop link things?

Just to make you feel at home, how about you ask a question and we give you an answer in 6-8 weeks?

A few minutes on google found this: https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/lemforder-1262894.html

Probably worth trying google before asking on here.

If you'd like to call at 8am, you may be able to get 5 minutes with an expert later that day. You may have to call circa 50 times to get through and if others have more important questions, you'll have to try again tomorrow at 8am.

That could be another emotional hang up. Doctors love it when you've diagnosed yourself online.
The Internet - It has proven to be worthless, and is nothing but a repository for perverts.
