General Comments:

A beautiful car with superb performance. I would recommend it.

My car has the E2 pack electric front seat seats and air operated rear head rests.

Everything is working in the car, no problem whatsoever.

My car has the 603.960 engine with 148 HP. Excellent gearbox; changes gears like a dream.

The best part of owning a MERCEDES W124 300 TURBO DIESEL is that everyone sitting in it was shocked at the comfort of the seats and the superb performance. I have had a W124 2.5 diesel and a W201 2.5 diesel, but the W124 300D TURBO is another world. Anyone reading this who wants to buy a 300D TURBO, do it today! It's something everyone has to do once in a lifetime! You won't regret it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
