Found all the AMG MPH clusters that I can ever use. Also, every AMG item ever made for the 126. Every item. Barry Taylor rocks!

Looks like the new kitchen will have to wait! LOL!

Get your checkbook ready, make sure you have a hefty balance and give Barry a call. 1 510 235 3990

He does not accept credit cards.

I've only personally seen one type at AMG. Seemed to be the only one they put in U.S. bound cars, but Barry says otherwise. I ordered 3, one of which goes to 200mph, why, I have no idea. Wine chiller rear console exhaust tips. Christmas in May!

MRTIKKET, I am glad Barry was helpful. Where you able to get the catalog from him? If so, ask him to credit you on your purchase. He will take the catalog price off on your total amount. My 1985 16v 6.0 has the 190mph in black. This is probably what one your's will look like. Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much were they? Barry seems to be very proud of his stuff and is very expensive, just wondering?

Thanks,
Hyder

Yes, I ordered a few books including the 32 valve technical manual for my mechanic. That manual alone was $350. He is crediting me with $50 for purchasing the AMG options booklet. A booklet that my father's company made in the 1st place. How ironic. The good thing about his items is that they are so expensive that they will be available to any serious buyer. He wants more for parts than most 126 owners have into their cars.

Small world as he knows the original owner who I purchased my widebody from. He's a fountain of knowledge.

Thanks for the geads up!

Wow, AMG passed off some reeeally cheap stuff for high dollar. that's branding for you. not knocking your taste, but those gauge faces would cost about $30 bucks to make.

I'm sure that when he bought out AMG West's inventory, it was for pennies. He's saved ut through the years. and probably thinks of it as a retirement account. I'm just grateful to have a chance at it.

*sigh* I think many years ago he used to own Mercedes of Richmond. I remember going there growing up, and there were a bunch of grey market AMG 190's and some S classes too. I remember calling a few years back if they had any parts for my Dad's w123, and they said they had new wheels and the body kit. But it was for a princely sum... :( I live no more than 10 min away too...
