'80 500SE AMG '80 300SD '78 450SLC '00 Passat GLX Wagon
As the owner of a W116 SD I'm just wondering if the W126 is better at freeway speeds than mine is. Maybe I've just gotten spoiled quickly but I was driving the SD this weekend to give it some use and it seemed really bad on the freeways. 70mph just seemed brutal in terms of noise and the general feeling that the car is nearing it's limits. Hell, 100 in the SE is a way more pleasent drive, even with the vibration it has once you get over 80. So, how are the 126 SDs? Just as bad, or did MB make some improvements in sound reduction etc.? I'm not thinking of getting another one, just curious. I do like the SD for what it is, I just didn't realize how limited it is until I got the SE.
