    Hi everyone

    I have just bought myself a W123 230ce , I have been after one for ages but have patiently waited for the right one. This one came up and I couldnt resist its had the same owner for the last 11 years and has only covered 10,000 miles in that time with all the MOT's to prove it !
    Its not concours but is definetley one of the better ones about ( trust me I have looked at dozens ! ) I have owned W123's before but never a coupe.
    I live in North Somerset / Clevedon so if anyone can recommend a local garage for servicing etc please let me know.

    Looking forward to getting to know you.

    Welcome from me (though I only joined yesterday with my 4 door W123 240D. That does look a nice one. They're a very elegant car IMHO, especially in that colour. Congratulations!

    That looks a very clean car.

    I purchased a W123 saloon new in April 1984 and ran it for 11 years before selling it. (I wish that I hadn't now.)

    I think that the colour of your coupé is silver blue as was mine.

    Enjoy.

    Got the car back from " Three Points Garage " in Bristol today they have done a marvelous job on the service and have advised me of some future work but say for the money its one of the best they have seen !

    I can highly recommend the garage should anyone need a Merc specialist in Bristol area.

    Very nice - welcome to the forum

    Had a 1978 W123 230C back in the late 80's in silver and black leather - Imported from germany. sold it with 260k(km) on it with buckets of rust but I remember clearly nothing major went wrong apart from rear shocks. Rest of suspension remained intact, bushings ,drag links and ball joints etc..never went.. Amazing !!

    Hi. The coupe looks a cracker!! Ive just bought a 1979 280CE, non runner but 58,000 miles from new. Been stood since 97' Good & solid underneath & generally on the body, all arches rust free!!!! I wanted one since I was 11 when my uncle had a 75' 250CE, I fell in love with that car & from that day on I promised myself I would own a CE one day. Well now I have finally achieved my ambition & am looking forward to bringing the Benz back to its former glory. I will add photos in the near future.

    Ok, thread from the dead but this is now mine.
    Just googled W123 coupe and thought the shot posted at the start looked familiar...

    So far so good!
