As is frequently noted on these boards, the cabin of the W126 is very quiet. Nonetheless, it seems to me that my '89 420SEL is noisier inside today than it was years ago (wind & road noise). Is this my imagination? Or are there tricks to improve the car's noise reduction ability? (FYI: I've always used Michelin MXV4's, so I don't think the increased noise is attributable to the tires.) Would replacing/reconditioning the door seals help?
Again, this could all be in my head, but I'd be interested in any suggestions.
PS: You guys are making me dangerous: Besides successfully repairing the long-malfunctioning fuel sender using the sage wisdom I found in this forum, I just changed my transmission fluid/filter/seal for the first time on my own. (I realize these are not "big-deal jobs for many of you; but for me, they are.) I'm enjoying my Benz (202,000 original miles!) more than ever. THANKS!!!
