If I get a proper roof rack for the 1991 300E, what is the maximum weight carrying capacity of the

I would check the owners manual, alot of times they put the max weight and carry capacity for your specific car in there. Thats where I would start.


I did a quick search and read that 200 lbs was the max as per what the owners manual should have written. Heres the link and I would still double check to make sure. link:
