Everyone has different driving styles , but yes most W126 are slow , old man cars that cruise heavily trafficked metro areas and rarely ever see over 2500 rpm. That’s probably 95% of usage. And performance mods are not realized in this type of driving .
Some people love to wind them out on weekend drives and it’s those that see most benefit from performance mods . But it’s all relative , even performance mods on a 250hp large car don’t make it fast -it will still be far slower than a modern Camry.
for me if I want a fast car I’ll drive my s600 or cl600. Op has his e63 when he wants a fast car.
