Wow nandish she looks factory fresh now show her to the guy you bought it from he will fall off his chair.

Just my personal choice i don't like them chrome arches :( especially if you are gunning for period tuner alloy wheels the two don't go.

Brilliantly maintained car, from the physical appearance nobody would guess it's age. She's smokin' hot

The post-polish pics are brilliant !! Congratulations



Cheers

This color and the AMG wheels similar to mine it looks nice. but on yours the classic wheels I am trying to get you wont go that well plus these are 17's and what i am trying only came in 15/16 which still leaves a large gap in the wheel and I think the over accentuate the gap

Buddy that car looks factory fresh. Great. IMHO you should stick to the original rims that were offered with this car i.e. the 7 or 8 hole alloys. Try getting chrome ones or then the BBS type, carbon coloured with a chrome lip. That will look Killer.

there is something with these old cars.they teach you so much.we have had city vtec, santro , forester for so long but never ever got to learn things as it did with my 126.
it teaches you how to take care of it,probably something new might not do the same.

Awesome car, dude. Brings back memories. This was my bridegroom's car for my wedding in 1988, a new Merc 280 loaned to me for the day by an industrialist friend complete with uniformed chauffeur and a full tank of gas. Felt like we were in an aircraft. Great buy. Dont worry about the cost and what others think of it. As long as you are happy, my friend, that is the true value of what you paid, to hear your heart sing with joy. I will be following this thread closely. Hope to get a car like this some day.

WWOOWWW such a showroom condition w126.
Do keep the chrome wheel arches.It's with the character of the car.
Or are you planning a tuner conv. with wide body kits and chrome alloys? YUCK
