Greg can you do this for any Benz? Or just the later models from the last decade?

Man you must really like these things if you are already set to add another one to the fleet! You really got a screaming deal on that one, I wonder how you'll do on the next one?

I'm in the market for a dozen +/- or so. They're the W123/6 of this Century.

I just bought my 2nd one. Don't need it...just wanted it. It was a deal I couldn't pass up, and I think CDI's are going to become very rare.

I came upon a sharp-looking 123 on the interstate yesterday. Not very many of them on Massachusetts highways anymore. It had Texas plates, young driver, doing about 80 in and out of traffic. When he finally moved over to open up the road to me, I showed him how quickly a CDI disappears in the sunset.

Great choice - (several CDIs......) I just think they're great cars to own a few of.

I'm only interested in the low-mileage examples. Unfortunately, they're hard to find priced reasonably. However, the low-mileage ones will garner more in the future too.

Great road story there too!
