you could possibly have the head gasket and wiring harness problems. remember those two shops i referred you to (Garwood & Westfield)? they usually have a w124 being sold by one of their customers. there is also a big used car place in Garwood called "Maranos". you see his cars all over the place. i see C280's there every now and then...
