Extremely well built classic!
Nothing. If serviced correctly, these cars are bulletproof.
I love these cars. I currently have 2 of them. I have had 4 w124 in total, including e200, e220, e220 coupe and e300 24v.
The leather on these cars is very hard wearing.
The e200 with cloth I had, did wear on the drivers bolster.
They rust in the front wheel arches in particular, but on all of mine I had this dealt with swiftly, and removed professionally and repainted, and it never came back.
They handle extremely well, and are so smooth and comfortable, unlike the replacement w210 which suffer from cracked springs and suspension, and rust problems, including electrical problems, even on low mileage examples! Give me a w124 anytime.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
