    would it be a good investment?

    buy it and stick it in a garage under a sheet for 20 years.

    Its very high spec but being a saloon its probably the least desirable body style for a 124. Convertibles do best followed by estates/coupes. You would need to keep it a very long time to see any return at all. Personally I would use it everyday. Its the same money as a pretty ordinary new car.

    That really has your name written all over it Dash. Sell everything you have, buy this and a new TT kit and you'll be set for life!!

    amazing condition, I think i'd ask for the loom to be changed just to be on the safe side, I wonder what else may have perished whilst in dry storage or am I being over cautious

    Don`t know why every time a 124 is mentioned loom questions start.My saloon has 160 still on original loom and when that goes,it`ll be something that you change once and get on with it
    A loom cost about the same price as a set of C63 tyres,don`t hear anyone owners going on about it

    still ok after 146k though not for long as a trip to the breakers approaches unless someone can make me a better offer.

    If I had the money I would buy that in a heart beat! I have seen many low mileage cars, but with only 3,000 miles this is superb.

    Thats cheap... will soon be snapped up by one of the classic dealers and it will be marked up at 30K +.

    I would buy it but It would take ages to sell I think.

    Its only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it.

    You could have a lot of fine MB models for 16k, a nice low mileage R129 for example....


    I see that being 8000 - 10000 at the very most...

    Its the same price as a pretty mid range focus. If I were in the market I would buy that and run it as a daily driver. So much better than a boring hatchback for the same money.
