Hi, I am waiting to buy some new centre hub caps for a set of Penta rims that I have I would like to know if anyone knows if standard MB hub caps fit. There seem to be a few different centre cap measurements, from a 66 mm size to 75 mm size.
75 mm appears to be the most common size, but I would...
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...
I thought that you might like to see a few photos of the 500SE W140 that I have just bought from the second owner. It has covered only 41,000 miles from new with a full service and MOT history.
It is brilliant silver with grey leather interior, totally standard except for an Alpine CD player...
Hi, I would like to find out something about the W126 500se, and does represent a reliable option to the W126 300se ?

I find that the 300se has been reliable...
Hello everyone, I tend to drift in and out of the forum. Haven't visited for a while as have been without a Mercedes of any significance. I acquired this 500SE back in March, it has covered 52,000 miles with just 2 owners and a full Mercedes service history. Since buying it I have had it...

Hi everyone, I'm new!
I'm thinking of buying a w126 and would be grateful for any tips, what to look for, if it's a good choice for a daily driver etc? I have other cars so it won't be covering big miles.
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...
Can someone please shed some light on a matter for me...

I have a near mint 1984 w126 500SE (30k miles).
The car has been in storage for many years and I'm now using it on a regular basis.
Other than one of the window motors and switch I haven't had any problems with the car at all - until now.
It is leaking petrol, but it is proving impossible...
Not on ebay yet but they will be soon..

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...
Car is stuck in field (don't ask!) Going tomorrow with friend in landrover to tow it out....can't remember where towing eye is? It is facing a hedge so I must tow it from rear, so if towing eye is at front where at the rear should I attach rope?
