    you cant get a 2 litre diesel 124.

    its a 2.5 or a 3.0 afaik.

    both are slow, but i have a 3.0 and its fine

    I think the 2.0d was available in all EU markets except the UK. Like the fact that you could buy a C200CDI w202 anywhere in the EU, bar the UK!

    as the question asked was "how good is a 124 diesel". then the answer is very reliable and very well built. it is slow though! The engines are the "bomb proof" variety and will run forever if maintained well. Also has the benefit of running on "comedy fuel" if thats your vice :D

    I'd opt for the 3 litre version. there are plenty out there.

    see here for some more info:
