    Hey guys, i sold my C123 280CE a few months back due to becoming a serious money pit of stuff to fix up, so i bought a good second gen 500SEC W126 and sold the 123 afterwards. All i've done on the car so far is the sound system, some work to the exhaust system for a nice sound, and a K&N filter. I have eibach springs on the way soon, hopefully after i get back from my holiday next week sometime.

    Any ideas guys on what i should do aside. I like the wheels on it currently, but am looking for something else too... not sure what though.

    and the exhaust

    gotta love the old Benz coupes! :runcoold:

    if it were mine id do Euroline DH in 19's. It kinda keeps with the old school style of the car but updated at the same time, being bigger and having a more aggressive offset and stance.

    cant go wrong with that car...classsic:biggthumpup:

    I wanted this car so bad when I was a teenager. Very clean.

    While you're waiting for your springs, I would buff the yellowing out of the headlights and fogs.

    Thanks guys. I think 19" is a good size, for a big car like the 126, i wouldn't want any bigger though.

    ebruce2: i'm planning on spraying that plastic inside the headlights black, like i did with my W123 coupe. Really makes a difference in appearance.

    +1 for some wide Euroline DH's or similar dish style. I love how DH's look on german cars.

    Buddy put the Wald kit on that car, absolutely stunning, just need to mod the w124 coupe for a W126 coupe cause there ain't no kit for the W126 coupe

    How about an AMG kit and euro healights/tails..or a retrofit headlight plus the clear corners? Plus some wheels to maybe look like this chop I just made:

    I also paint matched the outer portion of the grill.
  14. IMO that style benz looks best when left alone.

    Slam it and get some AMG hammers and call it a day.
