722.5

I have a 722.5 trans in a 96 W 210 and was wondering if anyone can give me approximate service refill volume.

Are you sure about this? I don't believe the 210 ever got a .5xx - it went from a four speed in 1996 to a 722.6xx in 1997.

I think five speed autos were offered as options in other nations before North America. If memory serves, I think even some W124's got 722.5's.

You may be right - I was thinking U.S. I would imagine some other countries go the 722.5 - especially on smaller engines.

The Australian delivered W124 300CE-24, 320CE and E320 coupes (M104 powered) were only available with the 5-speed 722.5 transmission whereas the sedans, wagons, pre '90 coupes and all 4 cylinder W124 models (including coupes) came here with either the 722.3 or 722.4 (4-speed) transmissions.

The 722.5 together with the 3.69 rear axle ratio makes for great performance from the M104 powered coupes but that transmission is fragile and expensive to repair, with some subsequently having the 722.3 retrofitted.

I replied before seing your message. Know of any transmission options for the V8 powered 124s?

Whilst some may consider us fortunate in Australia to have got W124s with the 5-speed auto, being a right-hand-drive market we missed out on the left-hand-drive only V8 models in the W124. A left-hand-drive car needs to be a 30 year old classic before it is allowed on the roads here. I wonder if the 500E will still be my dream car when it reaches 30 years of age? I wonder if there will even be any good original ones left by then or if they will be affordable?

Thanks for the feedback! So you get some of the good stuff (5 sp) but not the big block engines? Itís amazing the marketing tactics that MB employs. Do you get the larger variety of diesel engines?

Also while not quite the hallmark of craftsmanship that the 124 500E was, did you get any of the newer E55 models or are the V8 and maybe even V12 engines not sent to Oz?

Diesel models have never been big sellers here except during the W123 model run where the 300D & 300TD were popular (and to a lesser extent the 240D) although we never got the turbo versions back then. We did get a few W201 and W124 diesels and in the last ten years some diesels have been available in the C, E and ML classes (the ML270CDI and E270CDI are quite popular).

V8 engines have been available here since the W100, 111 coupe, 108, 109 and 107. V8s did not become available in anything smaller than an S class or SL until the M113 went into the W210 (E430, E55) and the W202 (C43). There have been a few V12 models available here starting with the R129 (600SL) and W140 (600SEL) although the cost meant they were not big sellers.

To see an example of the range currently offered here click on "Passenger Cars" at http://www.mercedes-benz.com.au/

Thumbs up

Thanks for the excellent summary and link! I spent a bunch of time drooling over the vast truck offerings. I'm surprised that more arenít offered in the US. Canít imagine there is a lack of market
