    W126 500SE alloy wheel change.

    Hi, I am interested in views concerning changing the alloy wheels on my W126 to be able to use newer tyres. The car has its' original 14 inch Mexican hat rims, but the choice is very limited for new tyres. The rims are 6 x 14, and about the only tyres that fit are either the very expensive...

    W126 500SE Versus 300SE

    I had a W126 500SE for 2 years a few years ago - loved it. Thinking its time for another W126. Wondering if this time I should try 300SE for economy reasons. What is the real out of town A/B road MPG of the 300SE compared with the 500SE? I'm worried the 300SE will feel underpowered...

    1991 W1126 500SE rust under rear windscreen - how?

    This is a known weakspot on these cars and mine is now showing first signs of it. My question is how does the water get through? My guess is that water is leaking through between glass and rubber seal? If so is this because seal has dried and contracted slightly and therefore not...
