In the picture showing the front of the car, it looks like a plow is attached to the car. That wouldn't work here in Philadelphia with the snow storms we get.

i dont know. if we could reinforce it. maybe we could plow and make some extra $$$$. the rims are nice. do you think we'd get good traction in the snow with that rim/tire setup [:p]

Here is another place that sells body kits for W126.
This is in California.

I agree. The body kits do like kind of silly on the sedans. Bling! Bling! Overkill!!!

I have seen this kit before, but couldn't remember the name of the company who made it. When I saw the kit, the car was next to a w140 with a similar kit. Both the cars were painted in a Chameleon (sp?) green/purple setup. The kit looks good, but doesn't fit the lines of the w126 in my opinion, looks MUCH better on a w140. Their prices are outrageous though, I assure I would never pay $4400 for a body kit for the w126. I am surprised they can stay in business with those ridiculous prices. Taillights for $400?? Get serious!! I got my all CLEAR taillights for $100 brand new!

erm... JR-rider - I think that's WHY they are still in business...

They only have to sell one ore two a month to stay alive! hehe... just think, for every kit they sell they are making soooooo much money, wald will have to sell three times as many just to make the same...


anyways, I think the ass is fine - hate the front.

And the picture that people have seen before of this kit is fron a Japanese car show, with a w126 and a w140 side by side. imo the w126 is totally sweet compared to the 140

whatever...

I never understood why Mercedes tuner's stopped producing parts for vehicles no longer in production. It seemed like 2 years after the end of a model run, the tuner had no parts available for that particular car. Now, it is starting to make excellent sense. Who in their right mind would spend 3 times the value of their car or more, on an overpriced body kit, when you could get a much better looking kit for a third of the price.
