Awsome...thank you. Yeah, I want to get it back to it's original form. First the gold has to go and then the wheels. Do you know if the Bundt style wheels are the ones it would have came with, or any suggestions for time appropriate wheels?.
I agree, lose the gold trim, boot (trunk) spoiler, wheels, steering wheel, body kit, red rear number plate holder and restore the lower plastic trim to its original colour. At the moment it looks like a contender for 'Pimp My Ride'. Get it back to its 100% original form. And while you're busy, get a period Becker sound system - there's nothing worse than an MB with a non-original sound system. BTW, the left rotary knob should be on 'I' to provide air flow via fan, on '0' all vents are shut.

Jumping in here, these wheels, at least here in the US are nearly non-existent.
I have seen many photos of W126 cars with them.. Totally different.

Its a look...

*I am partial to the 16 & 17" AMG offerings.. but that's just me.

Those 14" wheel trims were pretty common in th UK, especially on the 280s.
Loved the aero looking alloys on the ivory one. Mercedes never offered them as a factory option, yet featured on their launch promo videos & brochure. The closest I could find were ones made by Intra.

The wheels on the cream car in the picture that Malcolm posted has steel wheels with plastic hubcaps. All the entry-level W126 (280 SE/L, 300 SE/L) outside the North American market came with those as standard.
