He did the conversion before and I bought the car from him. To say it handles great is a gross understatement.

The E320 wagon that I bought from Termite, and promptly drove 900 miles home, with the exact modifications handled MUCH better than my stock 8,500 mile 500E. Best car I ever bought (out of 70 or so), and an honest seller AND a knowledgable enthusiast.

I added a 500E rear sway bar along with AMG 8.5 x 17 rear wheels and 7.5 X 17 fronts because, well, I just couldn't leave well enough alone.

All it needs is a C/E 36 engine (looking) to make it the perfect reliable economical long distance tourer. As it sits currently, with the stock M104, it is only 99% perfect...
Thanks again Jim.

Kind Regards,

Im looking for front springs and shocks for my 87 turbo sedan.
Do you know if yours will work?
Did you have front sway bar also?

Mike, you are 3 months late and a dollar short. All that stuff sold the same day it was posted.

For the front struts, check out Bilstein Sports or KONIs. You should replace all 4 shocks at the same time with the same type... it's not recommended to have stock in the rear with Sports up front.

The front Sportline bar is available new for ~$292 list, ~$225 wholesale. I may have an extra front bar that I'd be willing to part with (no matching rear though, sorry).
