The term for this feeling is COWL shake! Almost all convertibles have a bit of shake due to structure *flex*. The R107's can be severe if they have had body repairs that weren't up-to MB specs! TIRE balance is very important! The E320 (W124) convertible has 60+ lbs of lead in 4 places through-out the car to counter balance this effect!!
