I have to say 1994, since it is the year when MB and AMG started to market jointly developed cars with the 3.6 engine.
As W124 they made the Station Wagon, Coupé and Convertible. Not the Sedan since they already had the V8-models.
Personally I like the Coupé best and I was lucky to find mine three years ago with only 12.000 km:s on the clock. It is now 50´and still feels like a new car. The performance is all you need, when you need it, the sound is great, the handling gets better the faster you drive and I love just to watch the lines.
My car has a little flaw in that it doesn´t like hot ambient temps, and I am trying to find out why. It probably has to do with the little use, causing a bad contact somewhere. Annoying but not a major problem since it works just fine under all normal conditions.
These cars were produced as 94 models and on order as 95 and 96 as well.
