    :bannana:Hi Everyone:bannana:
    I am new here as I have purchased my 1st Mercedes W124 E320 Convertible and need a little help and advice, as you do with the older cars.

    All I know about this merc is that it was built in time Mercedes built them like tanks and I have always loved this Model.

    I have placed an advert in the Wanted section for some 17" or 18" AMG style 2 / Monoblock wheels. If anyone can help out drop me a PM.

    I will search through the forum to help me resolve the little niggles the cars come with post up thread if I need more help.

    :rock:Peace & Rock on:rock:

    I got a chance to get some 17 x 8 Aero 1's with tyres for my W124. These are the Flat faced alloys with sharpe edges.

    They suited to the W124 coupes/Convertible? :confused:

    How can I confirm the bolts I need, As wanted to get some of ebay before the wheels get here as thought they may be cheaper from there. Can I grab these from Halford or somewhere?
