Just wondering how many of these lovely W126 are still at or near 100K miles, or 160 K km?

Wow, that's impressive. [;)]

We seem to be missing the 150k miles to 200K miles category.

I have 196K miles on my 1990 560 SEC, but I put myself in the >200K category.

Grand finale for the W126, 1991 300SE 155,500 miles, just getting broken in. Was just in Monterey CA this last week and had several compliments on the car. Many people think it's new and when they hear it's 14 years old they can't believe it. Sure don't build them like they used to.[8D]

Mine is at 160,025. My mechanic is currently doing a head job on my baby. I'm learning something new everytime he takes something off. Last night we were examining the amount of carbon that builds up over that amount of mileage. This weekend I will be cleaning up some of the little connectors, screws, bolts, etc.

Here is an interesting article that I read to help me understand more of the Upper Cylinder Rebuild. Enjoy!

1985 380SE, 236000 miles, all original except for the ignition lock cylinder. It's a great daily driver. My mechanic says these things are bulletproof and it's only a 1/4 through it's life.

300sd has around 310-315xxx miles, I have had about 6 instrument clusters, so the exact mileage would be difficult to figure out.
300sdl has 306xxx miles.

245.000. Car still runs fine, although, I'm going to have to fix the A/C soon. PRoblem is with either blower or climate control. Pretty good car for a quarter of a million miles.
