It's probably quite possible you have something different installed, 'cos I can't say mine is deafening in volume at that speed. But the sound is fantastic that's for sure. Although once I have the engine going past 4000-5000 RPM it starts to get loud - but this is a good thing, because of the sound. ;D

It starts coming in about 70, then 80 you hear it, then it just BRRRRRRRR's

I'll have to try and record it

What does your's sound like?

My clock has stopped and it dosen't have a tacho, going to replace it with a clock/tacho combo soon

Des:  Thanks for the link - but all I get is the "You are not authorised to view, download or link from/to this site" message.   ??? ???  This is despite my being logged in.

Shall search around for it later - am off to other pastures for a little while (my language forums).

I'd be happy just to pose by having an AMG rocker cover on the 280S ;D  But yes the real deal would be better.
Interesting that the pic below shows a d-jet one in a w114.  I assumed too that the AMG M110 existed in w123's only and CIS injection. :-\

oh ok, humm not sure why it is doing that
if you go to Ozbenz
visit the W123 forum
scroll down to the 1980's AMG brochure picture thread and view that

Des, was this the link to the w123gassers forum.  i was just there trying to find that rocker cover pic.  Could've sworn Nutz posted some info about the AMGM110.  FWIW, that second link didn't seem to work - the m110.org site.

Also, i got the same error that OBH did.  But is the first link on the w123gasser's site the same as your ozbenz link?

EDIT: forgot the link http://w123gassers.smfforfree2.com/index.php/topic,150.0.html

Hmm...bit hard to say after driving the 350 so much lately...but I'd say it sounds much the same as what you describe, perhaps only alot quieter? If I've got the radio going, the engine is only really audible once the revs start to really come on (i.e that twin cam roar that sounds so awesome)
My tacho doesn't work in my 280 so unfortunately I can't say what revs exactly.

I just love the sound of my M110.   It sounds like a well-calibrated and well-oiled industrial sewing machine; it idles very smoothly (noticeably smoother than two friends' W124 300Es with far fewer Ks on their clocks) and winds up respectably enough.   Once it reaches about 85 km/h (no tacho - yet - in Boris) it takes on another life and pulls away from any vehicle I want behind me; it eats hills, chews them up, and spits them out like they were the slightest inclines.

A friend who owns a 5-litre V8 WB Holden ute was gobsmacked when he took Boris for a drive; his old WB (running on gas and petrol) was utterly gutless by comparison, though both cars had similar Ks on the clock (300,000).



Wow, I think my half-a-million km 280 might be a tad more worn than I thought...it goes well, but it doesn't sound like that description! Then again it does need it's injectors sorting out. :)

OOOOooohhhh for xmas this year...I think thats guna be on the list.

My SEL has the sounds of a worn out exhaust and has a cracked Y joint, BUT sink the welly and it gets a very nasty growl, the more I listen to it, the more I think a sports exhaust would make it. BUT I'd keep the twin outlets, make it look stock.
