w124 ownership. Recently bought an '89 300te with 94KM (60M) with the 4 speed automatic. It's an ex-Japan car with the ASD diff and dual mode a/t. I've noted that late in the W124 lifetime Benz brought out a 5 speed automatic. I'm guessing this would drop engine revs down quite a lot at highway speeds. Does anyone have any experience with the 5 speed automatics? Has anyone heard of conversions being done on the 300's to switch from 4 speed to 5speed automatic? thanks

W124s never had 5 speed automatics. Not even the E36 AMG had one.

later year E320's had them as option. I guess not for North America.
