    My name is Jan and I am a new member here. I was just browsing thru the cars for sale section when i came across my car!. I am new to the 500E500 scene and it looks like this great forum will be of help to get to know these cars better. I have had a number of other W/S 124, but the 500E has been out of reach until now. So far the biggest issue with the car is that all books and service records got lost during shipping. I have sent a email to Mercedesshowroom and asked if they could help me get in touch with the previous owner. Maybe he can help me get a copy of service history from the dealer he used to service the car. The radio code is also missing. If any of you have any tips to get hold of the cars history it would be much appriciated.

    There were only four 500E's imported to USA in Pearl Blue / Ice Blue. This one, the infamous RENNtech 6-speed car, one with a salvage title, and fourth with an accident history. This was definitely a rare bird!

    Re: OWNER - Jaru (Norge)

    Got some more info on the 500 today.
    Check out code 662 and 664, what wheels is this car delivered with?


    Thanks to Clark for helping me with the radio code, the Becker Grand Prix 1432 plays rather well
    Doesn't look like it was delivered with cd changer..?

    In the US market, CD changers were not delivered from the factory and wouldn't be listed with an option code. Rather, they were exclusively a dealer-installed option, and installed just prior to customer delivery typically at the customer's request.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Re: OWNER - Jaru (Norge)

    It looks like those codes denote that the car was delivered with the factory "Evo II" sport wheels, but chromed (which would have been a US only dealer option). But I may be wrong on that - I'm not a wheel expert.

    Also, I do see "Mushroom" leather listed in the official VeDoc that was provided you.

    That's a note for GSXR

    That code is described falsely as the "star design" wheel. That car came with the standard 8 hole 16" wheels. I've been noticing that for some time, and it is indeed false for USA/Cali (494) version vehicles. I plugged my VIN into EPC and it comes up with the same SA codes. I'd bet that every .036 USA car shows that wheel code. Inerestingly enough, a VMI shows the same code number, but with the text "No Description" Many ot the other SA codes come up with that text as well.

    Thanks Klink, thats interesting. I thought the tire size described (275/55 R 17) Seemed a bit large compared to the 225/55-16 on the 8"x16".
    The good thing is that I don't have to go out and source a new set of wheels..

    +1. Do not trust descriptions shown in the EPC for either color codes or SA codes. The codes are correct, the descriptions are frequently NOT accurate. You will need to use an external translation sheet.

    Hehe you know your languages Gerry! The car sits in my garage waiting for the snow to melt..

    A bit off topic, but I spoke to my friend Hans (hkollan) the other day, he told me you used to have a 906 300SEL 6.3 with red leather interior so i thought I could show you a few photos of my 906 280SE 3.5 with a 5.0 from a W126 500SEL...

    Looks like some misalighnment with driver side inner fender, make sure you take care of it before driving it cuz it will be destroyed pretty fast.

    P.S. Exterior color is just fantastic, I look at it and want to look more

    Re: OWNER - Jaru (Norge)

    I have noticed that the rear bumper doesn't lign up with the wheel arch. Does it look like the bumper is in the right posision under the tail light, or is it supposed to go further forwards?

    Does the 036 share rear bumpers with other w124 with narrow fenders? If not could this be a standard w124 bumper?

    It has stickers with the VIN on it though...

    Looks to me like the bumper was removed for repainting and not quite lined up / pushed all the way on when re-installed.

    Nope , E500E has its own unique rear bumper.

    Moreover, there is plastic insert (sort of small inner fender) between bumper and body that you may lost due to misalighnment . This plastic piece is also 036 unique. Check yours and make sure you buy one in case you lost it. I paid $56 in 2012.

    P.S. It definetely should be more forward, kind like on my ca maybe more . (pic attached)

    Hello Jan - congrats with your new ride - and welcome to the board!

    The car looks great, and it is the second 500E recently sold to a private owner here in Norway over the last two weeks.
    Here is the Norwegian sales note on your car: http://www.finn.no/finn/car/used/obj...ckthrough=true
    ..and here is the other car I mentioned: http://www.finn.no/finn/car/used/obj...nkode=44537274

    Both cars were discussed on our Mercedes-Benz Entusiastklubb forum, and both need a 036 headlight replacement, so in case you need the PN's on the lamps & lenses I've posted them here, see Svar #10: http://mbentusiastklubb.no/smf/index...1447#msg411447

    The previous Norwegian joining the board was Ingvar with his Nautic Blue he picked up in Sweden last year:

    Bing, to my knowledge is Jan's car the second US 036 imported to Norway. The previous came in late autumn 2014 by member stonyk
    https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5900

    Jan, your car is the 40th original 124036 I have in my Norwegian register. All in all I have 56 cars on the list, where the 16 others are converted cars in any form;
    - complete chassis replacements
    - spliced cars
    - converted regular 124s
    - converted station wagons
    - we even have a converted CE here
    - I do also have a Löwer Benz on the list, with no relation to the 124036, but a rare car though

    Norwegian owners has quite an individual attitiude about their ownership, which makes it hard to get information to that little register. I highly appreciate at least the VIN, but also import date, reg.number, mileage, color, any essential info about the car, and the owners contact information (Mobile & Email). I never publish sensitive information, it's just to keep an overview of the 124036 stable in Norway.

    Ciao,

    Bought a 200E partscar for salvage price the other day.
    would like to swap the lower dashboard panel on my 500E to euro style.
    are these parts interchangable when the partscar doesn't have an airbag on the passengerside?

    Yes. You will have to do some trimming, hole drilling and the like, but at initial assembly they started with the same basic dashboard shell, and it is the cars with steering wheel adjustment and / or passenger bag that take the additional trimming, so you should be good to go. I have wanted to do the same thing myslef forever, at least removing that obnoxious lump on the driver side, and no, I'm not talking about me (the driver)...

    Yes, I've known Hans for about 15 years, and he was very much one of the original inspirations for me buying my E500 back in 2003. I think DB 906 (gray-blue metallic) is one of the best exterior colors on the 108/109/111/112 models.

    Your car is beautiful !! Love it very much !! More pics please !!

    Thanks Gerry. Totally agree on the 906 color. Your 6.3 looks awsome. I have seen this color combination on one other 108/109 here in Norway, I guess it's pretty rare. Love the wood on the dashboard, and the Reims adapter. Do you still own it?

    you can check out this thread for more pics on my 280SE 5.0 on a Norwegian forum.

    Re: OWNER - Jaru (Norge)

    Finally got Norwegian plates

    Took the 500E for a trip to Germany this weekend to visit the Bockhorn Oldtimer markt. 2000km without any problems. I am not impressed by the brakes though. So a brake upgrade is on my list. Before the trip i changed the front shocks to Bilstein Sprint. They seem to work fine, but the ride is surprisingly soft and it leans a bit much over in the corners. Are the alternative springs available that are a bit stiffer? I want to keep original ride height or close to it.

    What impressed me the most was the stability in high speed and the ridecomfort. The seats fits me perfect and my back did not even hurt after 12 hours of driving. This is not the case in my other W124 with standard seats. And I just love the sound it makes...

    Hei Jan Rune

    Your car looks great!

    I'm not sure you have any options for stiffer springs with the original ride height, except for the E60 AMG springs which is a bit lower. But the roll when curving is also related to the swaybars. It is/was a group-buy going here on upgraded swaybars; https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5726
    The rear Stage 1 is done, and I organized a small batch delivery to Norway last year. We have been waiting for the front Stage 1 & 2, but the last I heard from Jackasic is that they will likely not be made, unless anyone really want them. It's pity, peps have been waiting for them, so I've start looking for an alternativ production in Europe, probably Germany.
