Default Hydropneumatic Suspension (HPF) Series 2

I thought I might start a new thread to specifically focus on the W126 hydro (series 2) suspension. This differs from the 6.9 and W126 series 1 systems and features adjustable damping, stiffening through corners and self lowering at high speed. I have 2 privately imported cars featuring this very expensive option, one a 560SEL and the other a 500SEL. Unfortunately neither is fully operational, but I'm aiming to get the 560 one up and running soon(ish).

More info to follow as I track it down in my files...

I would be interested in hearing about the recommissioning of this system. I never knew the S2 W126 already had these features. Your 560SEL has some interesting options with the full hydro and heated seats but manual climate control. Quite a good combo.

The console pic is not of my car, although it's very similar. In some circles it's called HPFE. Not easy to get info, but here's some more pix found on the net that detail parts in the system (I wish I could read German or have it translated):
