never driven a 123, manual or auto.... but i suspect you are well correct there! a manual merc is never good!!
but i want one!!
Ask Jaymanek to look at it for you..its his stomping ground. he could turn up in something non-merc and see what BS the seller comes out with. He may even know the seller.
The guy that is selling this sounds like a true sheepskin cars salesman.....he has a Daimler sovereign coupe for sale and he says:
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]"THE DAIMLER SOVEREIGN COUPE IS A PURE DEMONSTRATION OF DAIMLER OVER ENGINEERING AT ITS BEST. AS THE OLD SAYING GOES THEY DONT MAKE THEM LIKE THEY USE TO.[/FONT]"
Anyone who has ever owned one of these ( and I have) would know that they are totally and utterly unreliable and are riddled with rot.
I know the seller very well... not going to make any comments on a public forum.
he sells a lot of older MB's and usually its spivved up R107's he sells.
Thats not an original colour, well not if its metallic... they did do an orange, but it was a different shade.
the interior is not half leather, its half Mb tex...
If anyone is interested I could happily make a call to him but buy with eyes open.
