what exterior and interior parts can we get from a R129 SL500 that will fit our 140?

Really not much of anything. I have had both. I think the wheels might fight but not sure. The engines, transmissions are similar but probably too different to make it worth your while. Caps and rotors? :)

Now that I think of it the cluster housing is the same too and that always gets damaged somehow. Also I looked for a set of those wheels a few weeks ago no joy only a couple of loose ones that were in bad shape (bent or cracked badly) I tried to PM you but couldn't.

Very true sir. I have seen the 12 hole wheels on a 140 once but he may have used spacers or some vegemite to sort things out.

In all due respect, all the info I have indicates that the 140 has a 100L tank vs 80L. The 320,500,600 are engine matched, also the tach signal from the VSS will cause a mis- reading. This info is from a instrument rebuilder

W140 OEM wheels have 51mm offset, while R129 are 35mm.

swapping rims will change the handling characteristics of the car...

And with respect, that was the same site that told me a cluster would fit my car when it would not...so I don't really take their word as gospel.
