1990 Mercedes-Benz W124 CE 300 from UK and Ireland
Has no equal!
It gets a bit dirty every now and then.
Wat a car!
I've owned lots and lots of car's!
But this has to be one of the best.
It's not the most expensive or fastest!
But overall it provides a service second to none!
It has the looks! the presence! the reliability! the performance! the overall feel good factor to make this one of the best cars I've ever owned!.
My particular car is a 300 CE AMG the mechanical specification of the car is as standard, but the body and wheels have been treated to the fine improvements of AMG thus making this car truly remarkable.
Both to look at and own.
It runs and drives with the unbelievable reliability and feeling of a Mercedes. (FROM THAT ERA! BEEN TOLD THE NEW ONES ARE NOT THE SAME! AND HAVING PREVIOUSLY OWNED A C CLASS FROM 1997 I MIGHT HAVE TO AGREE) Yet has a subtle hint of something a bit different that comes with the enviable AMG upgrade.
As I've said earlier I've owned many cars in my time including BMW M series and Porsche as well as the best performance models main stream manufacturers such as Ford,Vauxhall and Volkswagen can offer many of with have cost me more money to purchase than this one, but none come even nearly close to matching the overall owning experience of this car!
So in short what I'm saying is
I couldn't be happier it's cost me less it gives me more and ten years down the line (not that I'll get that far without falling victim to another crush!) it will be still a better car than any previously mentioned!
But you can rest assured watever my next serious crush is it will to make it as good as the one I currently have it will have to be from the shining silver star!
Of course the letters (AMG) after the name will obviously help no end!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree completely, having recently bought a 300 CE myself,
She simply is the sexiest car design ever, what curves and lines she has.
The only thing which I would change is the autobox 4 speed into a 5 speed.

Yes, I have owned several Mercs and the W124 1993 300 D Sportline is probably the best. Nothing wrong so far. On previous versions I have had to change the shock absorbers after about 300,000 km.
