How many miles do you have on your W126?
I recently purchased a 1982 380SE Euro with 373,506 miles on the broken odometer. The same lady owned it since 1987, and it seems to have been serviced at the same shop since 1984. According to the records, the odometer had been broken for the past few years, but the lady hadn't driven it too much during that time. I believe the car was imported around 1984. Upon removing the instrument cluster to replace the odometer gears, I noticed that there was a sticker that said "52,045KM", which must have been the mileage on the original European cluster. I am now left wondering about how many miles the car has, but it must be around 400,000. I still need to check on the timing chain guides and such, but that is for another thread.
Anyways, how many miles do you have on your W126? Particularly interested in M116/M117 cars, but all are welcome!
