got an email back from the mfr today.

the w140 will NOT fit the 126!!!!

thats the end of that argument. damn[:(!]
Why would'nt it fit?? Uses the same size screw to attach the wheel, with the same size opening. Manufacturer doesn't try to find ways of saving YOU money. Think about it, why would they try to fit a w140 wheel into a w126 car, when they already make a w126 wheel?? We don't have any w140 parts cars at the shop, but I wish we did so I could show you.

i think if u look back over the thread, that i mentioned that they don't mfr the 126 wheel any longer. so by telling me that the 140 wheel won't fit, they are losing a sale.

this is never ending lol and I still dont have the wheel!![:(]
They wouldn't know because they aren't a repair shop so they don't have access to the cars to test it out in the first place. But believe what you want, I stated my findings and if you don't want to accept them, that is up to you.
