W126 anyone who knows how to tell the difference between a 260cc /280 n 300 cc engine
Hi benz sifu's

What are the physical significant difference between a W126 260cc/280cc and 300cc engine.
Since W126 share the same body for all three.
What are the major significance and obvious difference between the three?
Any sifu out there can help??
Appreciate if attached with photo shots and some details clarification. Greatly appreciate your kind assistance.
A thousand thanks in advance.

Regards
CM

CM,

Dont have the photos to explain to you, however, am sure the most appropriate model to buy (easier maintenance) is the 300se Auto.

I have a 280se manual, all ori, very nice car to drive, but its been said that its engine is a bit tedious to repair if spoilt.

As for 260se, very rare, underpowered..

Cheers
Ameer

Hi Ameer,

Thank you so much for your feedback and honest commend. Greatly appreciate it.
I did received similar feedbacks fm my regular foreman in Ipoh, advicing me to go for either 300 SE or SEL as a better option.

CMwong,

The 300SE is the best option the range for 126 range similiar to the earlier 124 range. All six cyclinders, 260, 280 & 300 share the same stroke of 80.2mm only different of displacement are of the pistons sizes. 85.5mm for the 300 to the smaller 260 82.9mm.

From what I had notice the W126 are very good cruiser by no meant for high speed or preformance handling.

Greeting E200,

I am not too sure about the handling and performance part, however did learn that it is nice to cruze on the highway...

For town driving i think the Fuel consumption (FC) will be high... ( not too sure) but looking at the heavy body it has the stop go mode will be surely give the W126 300 a poor FC.
Any idea how the FC is for town driving?

Handling is superb, and performance wise, it is not designed to match the F1...so, normal driving is cool...

Yes, the FC is on the high side, but that is the cost for me to own a W126 300SE
