    Hi all,

    I am selling my 1990 C124 230ce Coupe. Its in original condition with only 102,000 miles, i bought it at 93,000 and it has been my daily driver over the last year and has never let me down. It has MOT till 28th April 2016 and i have all the old MOTs to verify milage.

    It has the usual all electric windows, mirror, sunroof, zebrano wood interior, Black leather seats with no rips or tears, leather steering wheel, illuminated vanity mirrors, both seatbelt extenders work. It has the 15 inch alloys wheels and 4 dunlop sport blue response tyres plus an unused spare in the boot.

    The engine is the duplex chain and its the non-cat version. Starts first time, no blue smoke or any thing like that. 4 speed switchable gearbox

    Over the last year i have spent a lot of money on parts and replacing things (most of it preventative maintenance). I had planned on keeping it hence the extensive parts list below but my circumstances have changed and it needs to be sold to a good home.

    Over the last year it has had 3 initial oil and filter changes at short intervals as means of flushing engine. Since then it has had 2 services the first one using 10w40 Mobil1 semi-synthetic and a bosch oil filter and the 2nd using 10w40 castrol magnatec and bosch oil filter. Other items have included:

    new oil pan + gasket
    new fuel filter
    new air filter
    new radiator
    coolant flush and refill
    new thermostat+gasket
    new thermostat housing
    transmission filter and fluid changed (inc draining torque convertor) synthetic
    power steering flush, filter and fluid
    new Bosch rotor arm
    new Beru distributor cap
    new Bosch ignition lead set
    new Bosch Non-resistor plugs (H7DCO)
    2nd hand OVP relay
    x 2 engine mounts
    gearbox mount
    new valve cover gasket
    new oil dipstick o-ring
    new crankcase hoses to and from Idle control valve and into intake manifold
    all 8 hydraulic lifters replaced
    x 4 new Bosch fuel injectors
    x 4 new injector seals
    All fuses in fuse box replaced with new ones.
    EZL ignition module removed and heat sink material renewed
    New Fan temperature switch
    New rear heated windscreen
    New Passengers side window motor
    New driver’s side window regulator
    All interior dash bulbs replaced with original Mercedes bulbs
    Various broken bits of interior trim replaced with original Mercedes trim
    All the vacuum leaks i could find repaired (interestingly only 1 to economy gauge)


    In the last 3-4 months:

    x2 new lemforder front control arms
    left and right tie rods
    centre drag link
    steering damper
    idler arm bushing kit.
    New x2 front coil springs with 1 bump springs pads
    x2 new rear coil springs with 2 bump pads
    Full 4 wheel alignment including front camber adjustment.
    New rear copper brake pipes
    New original Bosch fuel pump
    New Water Pump
    New Belt tensioner
    new Bosch auxiliary belt.
    New front flex disc (Febi Bilstein)
    2nd electrohydraulic actuator valve (EHA) with x2 new original o-rings
    New fuel pressure regulator
    New coolant temperature sender switch.
    New ignition barrel
    Differential fluid change
    New gun-sight bonnet star


    The only negatives i can see are that it has a very slight wavy idle when in park sometimes after the engine is hot, i believe it needs a tune up (I don't have a CO analyser) especially since i replaced the EHA. Other than that there is some rust around the drivers side indicator and a little bubbling on the lower front edge of the drivers door. It has the 4 black wheel arches that i have also repainted.


    Given what i have spent on the car and my original plans for it I am only looking for offers in the region of £2995, which is not a lot considering what you are getting and the milage. Any questions PM me and i will give you my mobile/personal email for any further questions.

    I will have parts that i have replaced from the car on sale also including tools like the merc spring compressors, etc which i will post in the other classified section

    Cheers

    Sam

    Well sold the car, kind of gutted but there will be others!

    At least it's going to continue to give the new owner some pleasure
