HEY! Almost forgot to tell you guys. 2 days after buying the new W140, the W201 decides it's upper strut bushings and lower tie rod had just about had enough. SOoooo... I limp her into the shop. Well, ironically, my Mercedes mechanic shop owner live right by my mom! (Worlds best mech/ worlds best mom unite![:I]) Wife is out pushing the W140, so, who better to give me a ride home than my mechanic - in his "new" W126! Rough around the edges, but NICE! Handles true Benz, although I could tell there was still work to be down. 3 fold more road noise than my W140, but what doesnt have that outside a Lexus? [:I] Got in and "tried on" mucho W126's that day down at his shop, but that was my first ride. Damn, we to choose this lifestyle. I would go back fully to Acura, but then, I'd lose my mechanics.[:I]

This was your first ride in a 126, Ack?

Are you thinking of getting one, perhaps…[|)]

(Yes, I’d miss my mechanics as well – bless their Teutonic hearts…)

Sorry guys, I was only getting a ride, but what a ride it was. This was "SL" week. The shop was just concidentally, Everthing in there was an SL coupe, a W126, or a W140. Place was packed. I was the only 190E.

OH BTW, my mechaninc is thinking of converting his W126 Diesel to run off of vegetable oil. Rilly doe! And yes, I'm serious. 3 of them down there drive W`126 diesel. Oh yeah.

Ok so how much better is the W140 than the W126?


I had a good look at a W140 yesterday....it has its similarities to the 126 and its just pretty much bigger IMO. Both are my faves. Now the W220 is a different story when comparing both.
