Hey all,

What are the popular upgrades for the 126 series in terms of engine performance and suspension? I assume these cars are too old to have chip upgrades.

Thanks much!

How about Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories or Precision Auto Design?

W126s have 15" wheel/tire combo, why not make it as the first step of the upgrade?? A good tire/wheel combo can dramatically boost the performance(handling wise)with the minimum impact on your wallet..
