I've been really trying to get my hands on a company that sells QUALITY body kits for my 86 560SEL...Most of the stories I've heard (for the one or two companies that does sell 'em) are that they fit terrible or are gaudy.I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can get something close to if not THE AMG bodystyle kit because all I've run into is "its not available anywhere" Back at home in Chicago I used to go to an AMG "dealer" who sold the crap out of it (of course it was in the late 80's) but am suprised that these fine cars we still drive have very limited options as far as aftermarket or original AMG body kits for the W126.I'm not even as pressed about the skirts and crap but I don't see anything like a "decent" looking deck spoiler that would compliment the car without looking cheezy Are there any other W126 owners in the same predicament or what? Not THAT mad about it because these suckers look slick with or without the body packages but at least it would be an option to consider if we could.

I'm in the same boat. I don't particularly want to put a body kit on my 420SEL, but I can't find hardly ANY aftermarket accesories to personalize it.

I'd love to put some different taillights on my 126 (not blackout or whiteouts, nothing cheesy, just different) but no one makes them that I can find anywhere.

Actually, I've got a buddy that has the white tail lights for his 126 but he got them overseas (they're really slick).The bum just couldn't remember because he got em a long time ago from some guy down there he met (after he saw HIS lights on his car) and decided to get some for his.Man I wish he at least had the # to the place he got it from but... Anyway, so far I've got the glass european headlights although I'm gonna wait until next spring to install them and I plan on getting 3 sets of wheels 17's 18's and 20's also to be installed next spring. (the 3 sets are to interchange them between the 560SEL and 2 of my 250C's that luckily bolt right on).Sometimes I put the 16''chrome wheels from
my 560 on my 220D which dresses it up a lot).I just noticed you were in Tulsa...I went to college in Langston Ok (15min from OSU)and would sometimes DJ in Tulsa.I graduated and left for Atlanta right after the bombing in OKC (which shook the hell out of my house.I thought my neighbor --who worked on his benzes there--had some kind of accident or something until I got to school and found out it was the federal bldg.Was scarry!) Anyway,keep up the search and I'll do the same.Hopefully other W126 owners will share any ideas they have to "customize" this fabulous car!
