Good luck......btw Remus makes all Loriser Brabus and AMG exhausts of that tome period...and I'm thinking you will need $1000 more to the right person who still has one Nos version

Good luck in your quest!

Can you PM me the contact/info where you purchased from? I'm willing to go thru the hassle just to land one...

There is no "Seller" of W126 Remus exhausts - they are NLA. Rich probably got his from an auction from a Seller who happened to have a NOS W126 Remus available. This would be a hit or miss situation - just happen to see one for sale on an auction site that someone removed from a W126 or (unlikely) has a NOS one available.

Have you researched Remus' offerings? I don't know what the current/recent Remus catalog shows - is there a two-in/two-out Remus exhaust available that could be made to fit a W126?

I sold a near new W126 Remus earlier this year I took off my AMG (replaced the Remus with a correct AMG Sebring unit). I have another W126 Remus I got recently from a fellow BW member who took it off his AMG (traded him a used AMG Sebring unit for it). The Remus I have now is going on my 91 SEC.

You are doing the right thing by asking for one. Just don't expect one to pop up more than once per year or so. They are out there - your best bet is a take-off from a wrecked or parted-out W126 by posting a WTB or scouring eBay (US, Germany, UK, etc....).

Correct, I got mine off an auction. I had to fedex it over due to the size, which needless to say cost more than I paid for the actual exhaust. Al's correct, keep an eye open on ebay.de, or yahoo,jp or check the JY's, and ask around the boards - someone might have one lying around somewhere...

I look out for these on CL's and US ebay and have not seen one come up Stateside in the last year or two.

Or get dual in dual out universal remus and adapt it for the W126. Or get one of the Lorinser ones that come up on eBay.de

I've a NOS Wald muffler for the W126 that I'm going to offload as I just got a Sebring AMG for my 107 - PM me if you are interested.

Here's a correct Remus Typ 049 W126 exhaust for sale with a bent tip and beat up body for 200 Euros:

You have to know what you are looking for. I did a search on Google for Remus W126 and came upon the above link in about half an hour.

It took me 2.5 years, hundreds of computer hours and lots of $$ to find a NOS AMG Sebring rear exhaust for my AMG. Looking 2-3 times per week on eBay (US and Germany), Google, Craig's List and networking with W126 owners around the world. Some of these items are highly coveted and even if someone has one sort of available, you may not be offered.

thanks for the input guys. I have looked and remus does not offer a 2in - 2out universal, but i have even considered grabbing one off an e430/55 as they are dual in dual out and just cut the inlet pipes closer to the box and attach there. cant find one for a decent price though... only way i'll pay retail or more is if I find a NOS w126 specific.

I understand they are NLA, but i have been in contact with a Remus distributor and they will do a re-pro run if they can get 10 signed up & paid. Unless the serious demand was there, i dont want to put anymore effort toward there when I can be actively searching elsewhere. I have been looking on the ebays on and off, FS postings, and google every so often, but it seems like when one pops up, i'm a little late to the party. Keeping the search alive though. I know there's one out there...

This makes me regret leaving my Remus unit that i bought from Bergwerks way back in 01 on the other w126 i sold.

back ttt
