W126 300SE & 300SEL Specs?
Hi, I'm currently looking around for a W126 300SE, and I've come across some 300SELs also. I'm curious to know what are the differences between the two? How would I know if its really an SEL or its been "refurbished" from SE to SEL? Some SEs come with leather seats, some don't but I've noted that all the SELs have leather seats, some electric, some not. I'm getting confused, and I don't wanna be fooled into buying something which isn't really original. Can any of you guys help me out with this?

Re: W126 300SE & 300SEL Specs?
Bro, in order for you to find the car of ur dream u have to be patient in questing for one. Some more when the model u are looking for is of the age of 18-20 years old. No worries bro, u will find one. In fact a VGC 300SE/SEL u can get it within RM16k to RM22k depending on the condition of the car. Should the price is below RM16k therefore something is not right is going on with the car bro.

Re: W126 300SE & 300SEL Specs?
I noticed a lot of W126 on sale nowadays. Been checking on Mudah.com.my on a daily basis and seems like the 126 prices is going up! What is going on?

Saw one asking for RM13,800 and 2 days later, the price now is RM16,800. Some even ask for 37K and more absurdly above 50k.

But on the other end, some just going from 9k.

At the end of the day, one should never rushed into decision and try to scout for a good one, for me, even though my car is pretty much done up by the previous owner, I have already spend more than 5k on it and the list will still goes on....

Just prepare to spend if u are being fussy

Re: W126 300SE & 300SEL Specs?
Hi there,

IF I am not mistaken the SEL is six inches longer.

Very visible rear leg room.

I have one - 1989 CBU.

May be keen to let go - as I am keen to get a coupe instead.

IF keen - please get in touch.

Re: W126 300SE & 300SEL Specs?
I just came back from PJ Sunday car mart. There are couple of Merc on sale, saw about 4 Merc w126, 4 W124, 1 w201 and 2 W123.

I must say, most of the cars were in pretty shabby condition, bad aftermarket wheels, rusted body, bad interior finsihing and yet, they are still commanding high price for it, 19k for 89 300SE which has done more than 200k Miles!!! that particular sample, which i personally think will need another 6-8k to do up cosmetically ( restored to original). Never mind the mechanical bits, didnt bother to look into it after seeing the price, If the car is going for 10k, Then it will be a good ground for Sunday project, not when they are commanding 20k for it

on the countary, did saw a Blue 300SE which is riding on the same 17 inch AMG wheels as mine, owner asking 1x,xxx for it. didnt saw the onwer there even though I was standing there for some time. The car itself is quite in good shape, just the leather is a bit worn, but exteriorly has nice paint and refurbed wheels. shinning too. Owner appears to be Merzclub member.

other W126 was a one owner 85 280SE manual. Original cond with 95k kms. Not sure how valid is it. for me, at the moment, not looking for another w126, maybe getting another W124.

other prices i got from this morning,

W123 230E in beige//yellow- RM7K
w123 230E auto in white- RM15K!!! Surprised that he asked for this given the car conditions
91 W201 190E in Blue, sunroof. -RM16,800- Interior needs a total revamp. Body needs attention too
95 W124 E280- RM39K! colour faded as i can see briefly
87 W124 260E- RM18,700. Blue, not original, half done facelift. clear tail- lights with amber indicator in front.
96/97 W140 S320l- RM46,800- Nice condition. Well cared for.
worth having second look, but RM47k price tag, bit put off

Noted that you have a very nice White W126, has it gone to a new owner or you still keeping it? How is the 300sel coming along?

Any difference in terms of driving?

Wah, looks like I must really make sure I'm getting the right car before making any decision. Must research betul-betul ... I was looking at the buyers guide on www.mb-W126-club.de, it had some good tips. Still have a lot to learn from all you sifus out there before making a purchase.

Thanks guys.
