If you need something easy to get in and out of with room inside and can spend more than $10k, I'd get a w140 body E300D, mid to late 90's.
I did the W124 thang and frankly got tired of getting pounded at the dealer for almost everything plus I would like some comforts like good seats, navigation and sound proofing.
How available are the W140's?
