Yeah stick to the W126 unless you can afford mystery issues... those suspensions are very expensive to keep in order(140).

I want to know what happens when you go the other way, from a W126 to a W140? Will it be sublime perfection or a wrong turn that's hard to back out of? Anyone know from their own experiences?
I owned a w140 500.
I own a 420sel no. 1990.


I’m still looking for a right w140 to add to my collection as I like the opulent style it has. When they are well sorted they are very good drivers. Better in most ways on the road compared to w126.
But what w126 has that w140 will never have is an elegant, tinkers styling. It’s a best mix of 60s and 70s MB styles but with modern enough technology to be able to drive it on daily basis.
I also like chrome window surrounds and all around.
W126 also really shines through its simplicity. It’s elegant and simple. Not cluttered.
