Quote from: Denis on 08 January 2006, 05:00 PMSorry for "NO opinions", but you see Bill has the right idea, having driven them.As for the 6.3 massive bottom wishbones that are inclined to fracture or break in that area, they all eventually fracture on the inside. The 6.3 IS a money pit hot rod while the 6.9 is an "engineered" car.I always thought that longer wheel base cars were for more comfort and not better roadholding...and I am surprised about the idea that there is "no difference" as I bet there is if any that the weight difference between an M110 and an M100 should make the 6.9 understeer more.Driving a 280SE and a 450SEL 6.9 back to back should give some experience, I just thought that someone here might have done that.
QuoteIn retrospect, I think that a W123 with bundts and 205 tyres with a 3.5/4.5 engine would have been the ultimate sporty Mercedes saloon of the seventies.
