1993 300SEL Upgrade

Dear All,

I have a question for the tech experts in this forum. I have a 1993 300SEL. Its VIN# is 140-033-1A-121050. I bought it used. It now has 179,352 km on it. I have a few questions regarding this car. This is a very strange Mercedes. It has no cruise control and no memory seats. But these are the two features that I want most. It is like the base of the base Mercedes. I thought Mercedes is suppose to be the benchmark of luxury automobile even if it is a 300SEL. My question is if I were to add this two features to the car now, will it be a very tough job? And is it worth the effort? Many Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

There are aftermarket cruise control kits that you can probably retrofit more easily than a factory system.

You can fit power memory seats and door panels with switches if you can find them in material and color that matches your car. The wiring and necessary modules and relays will be a difficult task.

Depending on where you are it might be cheaper to sell your car and buy one with the features you want.
