I really, really want one of these, but I'm sure there weren't more than five sold here in the States, if they ever were.

Has anyone found a full cluster of gauges which has the trip computer, and if so, is it at all possible to transplant it into a '95 E320?

Thanks. It's not like I'd do it, tomorrow, but I'm trying to keep my mind busy.

i know it's possible and easy on w126. I have only seen this on e500 and i doubt it will fit on e320 from anything else than e280 or e320 because of engine management differences.

Yeah, the 126 is what got me to thinkin' it might be possible.



I'll even bone up on my German and start using metric as my default standard of measure if I could make this work...though I'm having conceptual difficulty with L/100kms. If it were Km/L, I could handle that, but I don't think in gallons/100 miles.

American brain...stubborn that way....

Mercedes W124 trip computer signals

Do someone in the Forum what signals use the MB trip computer?

I would like to retrofit one of these on my 1993 300D.

Hello mckellyb,
Did you find your specific W124 digital cluster?

Although I live in Europe, I am looking for one as well for my E320 1995 W124 convertible (USA version imported recently), but I still don't know if it will work or not. I belong to a W124 club, but no one seems to have tried to do it so far.

I have found a photo gallery in Germany where it shows a convertible with this cluster post installed: 29032009489

So if you have had more success I would very much be interested :thumbsup:.
Best regards.

I'm afraid it won't be possible to fit a Reiserechner in your car, because it's a diesel. AFAIK, the Reiserechner needs signals from the ECU (which only gasoline-powered cars have) in order to show the actual fuel consumption. At least that's what I read in some German car forums (most notably w124freunde and motortalk.de).

The reiserechner IS available on the diesel W124, at least the last ones built.

The MB museum in Stuttgart has a silver '95 W124 E300 Turbodiesel with that configuration.

Check out this 1992 500E with reiserechner :) There are some buttons for it between the rear window switches.

Yes, and if you use the forum search engine this has all been covered before.

Bottom line, it's not exactly a great system and it is not just a plug & play affair.

Excactly.Though I've always wanted to have reiserechner, i don't even know why. I just find it very cool and pretty rare option to have :)
