    So what do we think of this peeps?!

    Mercedes W124 300td estate For Sale (1992) on Car And Classic UK [C655168]

    I'm hankering after a w124 estate as a family wagon for some reason. Looking for something to work on and get looking like Jay's gorgeous E36! I'm not fussed about a tatty example as long as it's mechanically sound. I don't know why, but I think I've got the 124 itch...again.

    Maybe the one above is a bit too tatty....or is it?! :crazy:

    Will probably last longer than the W210 V6 you have if mine was anything to go by. 2000 model and rust all over the place. Go for it!

    Spend £2000-2500 on that and you'll have a nice £700 estate car

    It needs too much doing to it and then some to include the stuff that hasn't been confessed to... all these cars have reached the stage where they need something doing to them every few months. That's old cars for you. No depreciation but frequent cash outgoings.

    I'd get the multi-valve, superb vehicle.

    200k+ on mine, just did a run to Belgium in utter comfort and returned 38mpg.

    What do they mean about digit missing from front number plate. There is no room?
