I can't really comment on the 126, as my experience is totally on the 123 chasis. But I share your appreciation for how well thought out these cars are. I am a new owner and working thru a liost of "bugs". EVERY time I investigate a system, or component I am impressed not only by the quality, but just the amount of thought that went into the design. Latest example--I changed the auto trans filter. My experience with all other cars is how difficult it is to line up the gasket and the bolt holes. MB solved it simply by keeping the bolts out of the gasket and fitting the gasket over a formed lip that keeps it from slipping from its intended location.
