1991 Mercedes-Benz W124 300CE Coupe 24-valve straight six from North America
Timeless Classic - A Teutonic Masterpiece
The original catalytic converter is breaking apart inside, the antenna mast goes up only 1/2 way (but radio reception seems to be unaffected).
Bear in mind, though - this is a 21-year old car.
Sit behind the wheel, go for a drive... and you are truly "transported". I don't just mean that you get from "point A" to "point B"... this car makes you feel like you're much wealthier, much more important and much more influential and intelligent than you really are. :-)
The engine and running gear are buttery-smooth, quiet and powerful, the interior swaddles you in leather, wood and the highest quality materials available, and the ride makes you feel like you are being pampered at a spa. When you park it, you look back at it admiringly while walking away and think, "Why yes, that's my car... isn't it faaabulous"?
The car feels like it was hand-built, hand-carved and custom-tailored by old, white-bearded, bespectacled German artisans.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with the above. I have the E320 Coupe. Just to see it reflected in shop windows whilst slowly moving along makes you realise how beautiful these cars are.

Hello and congratulations for owning a W124. It's a joy only W124 enthusiasts can experience. As many would agree, this car is a true beauty indeed. My heart beat changes whenever I look at it in love. However I beg to differ about the sound of car. Mine is a 1996 W124 250D and the engine sounds like a truck/tractor. But the sound reduces as soon as I roll the windows up. Nevertheless I cherish the joy of owning and driving my W124. Though I have owned 3 different cars before, but with my W124 I feel I have an emotional attachment. I hope and pray that it stays with me all my life. Till death do us apart.

Regular maintenance does a lot more than hoping and praying.
