Quote from: "hokman"Maybe it isn't long wheelbase too.
Quote from: "hokman"It seems that most members here are lucky enough to own a 6.9. I understand that the 6.9 would be the ideal engine to haul around the heavy 116.
QuoteBut it's not that easy to find a 6.9 to buy right? Maybe I should wait until I see one. However, wouldn't that enormous V8 make the car really front heavy and deteriote the handling?
QuoteThe automatic is certainly a better choice over the manual.
QuoteI don't really like the 126 because my aunt has one and I'm not a fan of those plastic bumpers. Her's was a 560SEL and now it doesn't run anymore. But no doubt that my aunt is one uncareful owner who crashes over bumps and doesn't do regular maintainance. I hope the w116 would fare better than a 126.
QuoteBenz was famous for excellent reliability, quality and engineering. But the company started to cut cost with the w210 4 eyed e-class right? I also feel that the W140 s-class has no style at all, it's just a huge saloon with no beauty. Maybe the company's turn for the worse had started earlier.
QuoteSo is the W116 considered the golden era of the company?
