You ain't BS'n
Yea cleaning brake dust off is a super pain. I'm lucky as I have access to auto shop with everything, (including heat)..lol
I used simple green and let it soak for a while, then used a heated water power spray, (3000psi), and after a few applications comes super clean ...a real messy crappy job...
And yes those wheels will fit any R129 SL, along with 190's, 211's and probably a few more...
Perfect wheels for a W124 (ride wise), but the 8" width will most likely have some rubbing issues without the wider fender wells like the 500E has.
All R129s are a perfect fit.... Oh, and the center caps for these are easy to get new, $9 each I think could be a little off here
