Personally I am fine not having ABS.
I grew up driving a rear wheel drive wagon back and forth from buffalo to new jersey in blizzards.

I want to go back to having a classic MB diesel as my daily driver.

But I have two little kids and just feel like it would be irresponsible not to have abs.
Also my wife is from texas and I have visitors come into town that I may lend the car to and I'd prefer to have ABS so they won't total the car the first time they try to brake on an ice patch.

I have heard that mercedes invented ABS and the Air bag.

Were these options offered in Europe on the W123 or the W116?
Maybe I could get a grey market or import a EU model.
You play nice and so will I.
