    Anyone knows anything about this W124?
    classic cars mercedes benz | eBay
    It’s been on BIN classic cars mercedes benz | eBay for some time before listed on auction and had a lot of followers.
    Looks decent on the photos and the MOT history shows nothing unusual for the age but the lack of description and zero seller feedback makes me wary.

    It will have the twin cam M111 engine so able to keep up with motorway traffic- just. As a post facelift w124 it will have the waterbased paint and the dreaded engine wiring loom problems. Body condition is paramount I can detect signs of the start of paint breakdown on the front edge of the sunroof and the ends of the rear wheel arches but its minor at this stage. Look for corrosion on the inner wing behind the headlamps the rear sill jacking points and where the rear subframe mounts to the body. Looks an honest old thing--if it drives OK - I would snap it up.

    Should have also mentioned the 2 litre may come with the PMS ignition module which are impossible to repair and replacements are becoming more difficult to source. The 220- 2.2 litre M111 has a HFM unit which can be repaired. any signs of plugs misfiring .
    be carefull. PMS unit below

    Not these days, they don't. It's black, grey, silver and if you dare suggest to the salesman you might like anything else they tell you it'll be hard to sell on second-hand.
