Electronic Ignition for your classic MB!

Hey Vintage MB owners. Here is a great upgrade for your car. Change the ignition system to a "modern" electronic ignition by Pertronix! It works. Never have to adjust points or replace them! Plus it literally plug and play. And if you upgrade to the matching coil, it'll spark your plugs at 40,000 volts! Which makes your car burn fuel more efficiently! All for about $200! How sweet is that? I'm doing it on my 280SE.

RE: Electronic Ignition for your classic MB!

I bought one for my 280SE 4.5 I went to the pertronix site first and they sent me to a regional dealer (they don't sell direct to the public). Regional guys sent me to the local dealer (NAPA Automotive), who ordered my stuff. The system for my car had to be specially made, so I've yet to receive the goods. Looking forward to seeing how differently it runs.
