I use to have a 1988 420sel and it was so comfortable and solid now i have a w201 190e 2.6 not bad at all but if it wasnt for the high gas prices and that i drive so much i would surely keep the w126 check the pics
Very nice. At least you stayed with Mercedes. Still a little classy car, but too small for me.
But as a daily driver, I will admit that the W126 is an absolute killer with today's oil prices. I only drive the W126 because I see the car as a hobby and something to look and play with on random occasions and to somewhat piss my buddies off because they don't know why I keep it.
It's too bad we don't live in places like Venezuela with $.12/gallon. Or else I'd be driving the 126 everyday.
I try and be practical but everytime i consider driving anything other than my SEC i cant help but think "why am i driving this when i own a SEC?" so i grin and bear $140 a week on fuel because driving my Mercedes is one of the things that just makes life awesome...
My W126 300SE is bought and paid for so any driving I do is just fine by me. It gets about 22 mpg and I know I need to fix things like injector seals, headgasket oil leak, and some old vacuum lines and rubber bits.
its a 1991 190e 2.6 and it has 175.000 miles with books and records
its real good but it needs wheel alignment. its real smooth but not as smooth as the w126 v8 but i like i average around 400 miles to the tank and i fill up wirh 50 dollars so its a good deal
