I've been offered some 16 inch Fitapaldi wheels for W126. I do not know what they look like yet and am wondering if anyone has a set on their car & could post a picture?

I'd really like to get some 'AMG' Pentas for my SEC, I'm thinking that idea might be 'pie in the sky' reasoning on my part.. so I'm entertaining other ideas.

Thanks in advance, MBL

Pentas aren't pie in the sky but you have to VERY patient and watch ebay like a cat to find them in the US. Most of the good sets seem to be in Europe and I doubt it's worth shipping them over. Sorry I can't help you on the Fitapaldi wheels- did you try a Google search?

Thanks for the update/reality check, really. There is a tempting set on ebay right now. To ship them here would be about $550..... Then there is probably Duty as well. OH, did I forget to add the purchase price?

That's why I said 'pie in the sky' - I'm not sure if I'd want to climb out quite that far on that limb...

Cheers, MBL

$550 shiping? Ouch. If you're patient though a set in the US can be had for around $700 it seems. Provided you can outbid all those who want them[:)]
