Certainly not Talbir, maybe we should send MBZER over to England so he can burn a few union jacks in Buckingham palace and have tea with the queen. Perhaps he can stay with you while he is there? What do you think? Is that ok?
Well I'm really not surprised that you take it all so seriously.
Why do i care about burnt union jacks and the queen ?
Lander91 - the M120 conversion is still in progress and i expect to be comlpete around October time. The Widebody is complete, interior AMG wood and Recaros are done, and engine wiring progressing. This is 10 x the pain of an M119 swap, trust me....
The 560SE, recently converted from a 300SE, is absolute dynamite ! Nothing compares to a 300+bhp with 3.46 - it can match my w124 500E's and is probably quicker in mid range, from say 50 - 130. Acceleration is absolutely astonishing and everything becomes a blur !!!
I'll post some pics later of the self levelling retro fit too - used AMG struts and springs and retro fitted the self levelling system from scratch. Car is sitting perfectly and the SLS works like clockwork.
But NOTHING beats the 300bhp with a 3.46, sheer joy !
And the diff is still alive after 1000 miles of hard acceleration.
