Arrow What do you think?

Hello everyone,

I'm considering purchasing a 1990 300ce. I was wondering if I can get some of your opinions about this year/model car.

I believe in 1990 they got the 104.980 engine which is a DOHC , 24-valve engine producing 217 hp instead of the SOHC, 12-valve, 177 hp (I think) found in the 1988 and 1989 model years.

Is this engine supposed to be better or more reliable than the 103.983 engine? Are there any known problems with this engine?

Also, I believe the interior got a facelift in regards to seat stitching. What I mean is the older interiors had the vertical style stiching where as the newer design has horizontal stitching resembling the 190e 16v style interior. There is more wood too I think.

Anyway, I've always loved the styling of the W124 coupes and the W124s have been considered to be one of the best used car buys according to many sources, so what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance
