I agree... original color-coded hubcaps make a W123 look quite retro-classic and unique in its own way. I also like the factory optional Baroque or Bundt-style alloy wheels, either 14" or the holy grail of alloys - 15"s!! W123's tend to look attractive too when shod with W123 era-correct German wheels such as Ronal (pentas, R9s, etc..) or even cross-spoke alloys such as BBS 15"s. Original factory AMG rims are ultra-desirable too for the sporty look. I'm not too fond of chrome wheels on a W123, maybe polished but not chrome... Of course, everyone has their own tastes and preference so that should be of individual priority for each and every one of us... different strokes for different folks! [^]
thank you for your oppinion, I went to your site Benz bar, I would just like to congratulate you on your fine collection of cars. I have never classic mercedes cars in such a good condition. You are trully a man with great taste.
I think bbs wheels (from -80Â´s) looks good at my car.
And the wintertyres on 15" baroquerims also looks good.
Of course i still have the original 14" hubcaps and steelrims left if someday i wanna switch to originallook of the car.
But the original 14" baroquerims also looks great on w123`s!!
I love the hub cap look. Does anyone have a 14" hubcap they want to get rid of? I was thinking of polishing my alloy rims but think modifying a hubcap may be a better way to go. I'm just looking for one to experiment with. Will be happy to pay for shipping. Dented or scraped doesn't matter.
I have just gotten a 1981 240D which is a 4 speed and a diesel. I am just getting some project ideas in the future. I am trying to keep this as clean as possible but with an edge. This car is almost completely stock except for repairs. I want an opinion on if I should get a new exhaust or...
Hi, I had a 83" 200 petrol with a manual/stick shift. Right now Im having a mild whine unless I engage clutch. Im hearing them at stationary, Im not sure when the car is moving since its a mild whine. Anyone have experience such before could give me some advise? I believe the 4 speed manual box...
My water pump is seized and needs replacing but I cannot get it out of the housing.
I have had it submerged in vinegar for the last two days to try and break down any rust and free it, but it just wont budge.
Anyone have any suggestions?
So I'm getting ready to do this in the next few days. I've got the filter and some plain old dextron III atf, but there's almost no info out there in the manuals or on this foum about the procedure. I read the diesel giant post on the subject:

But is that...
Hi guys. I just got some LED's for my dash and the wires go over the top of the wedge and onto the other side. From my research, I assume that this will cause a short. I have researched the modification and am still unsure. Can I just clip the tag end of each wire that goes over the top of the...
