Before you purchase the car make sure that the AC works or what it will cost to fix. If the pressure in the system is low, there is a "low pressure switch" that will keep the compressor from coming on to avoid killing the compressor. A common problem with the 300E is the AC system, especially with leaks in the evaporator. You can do a search on this topic and find a lot of information. If the evaporator has to be replaced you are looking at a major expense $$$. I know from experience. The W124 is a great car, just be sure to check it out and do your homework. This is a good place to research problems and solutions. Make good use of the search capability.
