    W126 Horn

    I drive a 60's Bentley with a truly awesome pair of horns. They are Lucas Windtones I think. It inspired me to buy a set of four Cadillac horns called freight train horns for the SE - they are tuned to different notes and are very nice. I needed to rig up two relays to power them. Very good...

    Luddites unite!

    A lot of the tech can just get in the way. But that seems to be on cheaper cars. It can be clunky and ponderous. I drive a new S-Max, new C-Max, Renault Kadjar, Skoda Yeti, some horrible Peugeot thing, and on all of them the keyless thing can be an annoying pain in the **** that just makes loads...

    W126 Suspension

    I think the specified drop is a bit of a joke. Different results for everyone. It's rarely an awful result though.

    W126 Headlamp Wiper Arms

    Ah they change their prices so often, be little point guessing. I bought some ages ago and after all the wheeling and dealing in wiper arms I'd done, it seemed fine.

    W126 Suspension

    Standard Bilstein shocks worked very well for me and not expensive from online. Dealer might be much more expensive but you never know. If buying springs be aware there is a strange anomaly with part numbers, on the front springs at least. That's the dealer ones anyway. Something like two...

    W126 Headlamp Wiper Arms

    I think you need the arms I'm afraid. Not so bad from the dealer.

    The worst touch screen I've used recently was in a Renault Kadjar. Really quite dangerous I thought, so low in the dash that the satnav was painfully difficult. Then in the speedo binnacle there's a little thing that grows leaves to encourage 'eco' driving, to distract you from the road. And...

    W126 front bumper

    It fits at long as you use the chrome central piece from the saloon. (Fitted to the SEC bumper.) Only because the saloon centre piece of chrome has the indent for the grille to fit when the bonnet is shut. So the side pieces are the same from saloon to coupe. Easy swap basically as long as you...

    Are mercedes driver all -

    I wave like a loon at any other W126 I see. Hardly ever see one though. Had waves back, apart from the first time when I got a slightly confused look and then nose in the air. Will happily wave at any old Merc. I'm used to the waving, I have a 2cv too... Had some nice interaction with a...

    W126 V8 aircon, cooling fans

    Yeah no idea why they have it set so high. I only discovered my fan wasn't working when it went into the red one day in traffic. New radiator was needed. Found the fan was seized, it did free up fine but I had to fit a manual switch in the glove box cos couldn't get it to trigger itself.

    W126 V8 aircon, cooling fans

    They don't cut in until quite scary hot. Think it's about 110celcius or something similar. Unless the aircon pressure reaches a certain threshold and they'll trigger for that.

    W126 Rev Counter not working

    Never known the tach not to work. The clock not working is normal enough though, they always seem to be to expire at this age.
