    Bargain 123?

    And he’s ‘restored’ it, yet it has MOT advisories for worn parts and an oil leak...... A cheapo respray and some bad wheels.

    W123 - Deluded seller

    I didn't offer him a grand, I was high bidder at a grand. That's what the market deemed it to be worth.

    W123 - Deluded seller

    I followed this car when it was up for auction a few weeks ago. It ended at just over £1000 with me the high bidder, but reserve not me. I text him and he said he wanted £2000, with is too much for a tatty looking car with no description, and it was described as rust free - which it clearly...

    Interesting TE 24v

    If it's as described, with all that spent then it should be a great car. I loved my sportline 300 24v back in the day. That exhaust though..... The awful pics will cost the seller a load of money in the final price, unless a canny person goes to look and offers something decent.

    W123 Brake Master Cyclinder

    Thanks. I will have a look at it tomorrow. The brakes are A1 in terms of performance; there's just no pressure in the pedal and long travel. Pumping them initially brought back the pressure, but that's now gone, so I'm assuming it's a leak.

    W123 Brake Master Cyclinder

    As per the title, mine has failed. No resistance and pedal to its lowest point but brakes still working. With this in mind: 1. Is cyclinder failure the only thing that could cause this? This symptom came on over a few days and now even pumping the brakes fails to get the resistance back...

    Low Miles, Mintish W124 260E

    Looks very clean for its age and a decent price compared to some of the asking prices out there. Stick some period alloys on it and would look so much better. '89 Mercedes-Benz W124 260E (55k Timewarp!): £2495-Scotland | Retro Rides

    Scam e55k

    Yup. When I sold my E500 the buyer was happy to pay me a fat deposit without seeing te car or me.

    Anybody know this E55?

    Looks pukka to me. Date of registration for this reg is June 2003, but it's listed as a 1999 car with the DVLA. Bear in mind the car was re registered almost 12 years ago and the rules may have changed since then. Surely the V5 will state all this on the front page as it does for cat c etc...

    w123 230E 1983 with interesting spec

    if my mind serves me right, this is a South African car that was sold around November for £1000 on eBay. I was interested in it but the previous seller was very cagey about giving me any info so I left it. This seller buys them on eBay and they're listed again a day later. He bought a decent...

    w140 cl500 with loads of extras and private for 1500

    'They do not build them like this anymore' True, they tend not to rust so much these days or drop so much in quality from the previous model. Probably worth a few quid to a breaker.
