Re: W126 Concept Car

Re: 560sec ece

Re: W126 Concept Car

That dash would have been groundbreaking when introduced in 1979, but imagine trying to repair it now!

I am glad they went with something more conventional. The rest of the dash looks pretty...

Re: Car of the week

That SEL looks really good. Love the red interior.
all it needs is to loose those aftermarket chrome arch trims!
Shame it is in WA.

Re: W126 Exhaust Performance Upgrades

This is my Aussie SEL, so that was mostly for the O2 sensor.
When I eventually do the SEC, it doesn't need an O2 sensor and would probably go with something more aggressive.

Re: W126 Exhaust Performance Upgrades

I just had the exhaust done on my SEL. Somebody had replaced the kidneys and done a terrible job. You couldn’t get the hangers to line up and it was scraping the drive shaft. I replaced it with...

A while back patrick posted on the thread dedicated to his now sold 560SEL that you can get colour matched aerosols and touch up paint pots.

Found a few more differences:

1) Larger and more powerful engine - 180 vs 150 kw
2) Reclining rear seat as standard (optional on the 420)

5) LSD as...

Re: wheel swop 17 inch for 18 inch

Sounds like a good solution.
I don't understand why every car needs to have such big wheels. cars oriented for comfort should have higher profile tyres with a bit more give.

Re: High Compression 560s in Australia

Spotted another one that had been hit hard from the rear, but looked like a nice one before it was written off. I bid at the salvage auction, but was outbid. Final hammer price was about $2350.
