Here are some pics.

The ideal would be to have air ducting from the lower end of the grille.
They knew long before the W126, all W108/109 cars have a cold air intake, from the lower part of the grille on the right side in front of the radiator.
This and the factory air filter/intake system has been proven to be superior to aftermarket K & N filters/pods by a past member of the M-100 group on the drag strip, with back to back runs. The factory set up was quicker and faster in the same atmospheric conditions every time
