WTB 300D 2.5 Turbo

Looking for above model. Must be rust free and original paint.
Mileage not an issue as long as it has service records.

Thanks!

got ALMOST what you're looking for.... 1990 300D w/113K. no rust, but NOT original paint, no service records except what came with the car when my dad bought it about 4 years ago. I will be listing on Ebay to see what she'll go for, if no luck there I'll be posting her here. They have a $1 listing special this weekend, so if it doesn't sell I'm not out much dough. The car's in exceptional shape for a '90, so it will be at a $6k reserve on Ebay. Look for it Sunday night if you want to see the pictures. Again, if she doesn't sell there I'll relist here... so you can wait for that if you want. (I'm in NJ by the way)

There will rarely be circumstances that intervene, and the cars do not accumulate mileage, but this the exception, rather than the rule.

You're searching for a 15-18 year old car, one that will be expected to have (15YO X 15K miles/yr) at least 225K miles on it.

Granted they are out there, but with your criteria, you are looking for one the top 1% of the cars remaining.

Given the rarity and the current popularity, you should reasonably expect to spend some time finding this car, and be prepared to pay a top dollar price once you do find it.

Good luck, and be patient, and you'll eventually find just the car you want!

Yep, looking for something that is in great shape.
Learnet it long time ago, spend a bit up front but have something you can keep for a long time. There is no such thing as "cheap" Mercedes.. unless you have a horseshoe up your you know what.

Took me 5 years to find the wagon we have now.. and I LOVE it. So much in fact I want a sedan for myself (wify drives the wagon).

Did a bit of search in Europe, but looks like with the stron Euro it's actually cheaper to find them on this side and in better condition.

Thanks!

Yes, I agree completely.

Tuck away the cash, wait patiently, and be ready to buy when the opportunity comes along!

Buying on opportunity always beats buying by neccessity.

Yeah, as a buddy says;

Hmm. Leather, '91 door panels / speakers / exterior panels / door handles, dash, ... add another cylinder and you'll have my '87.

There is a used car factory, it's in our garages.

If the price is right we would save on shipping those panels...

W124.128

was also looking for W124TDT for quite a few years. Looked in Europe as well and at units coming from Japan. From Europe MB quite often poorly equipped, driven on salty roads and pushed hard on the autobahns. Also salt on the roads in Northern Japan and most of the time mileage claims cannot be backed up.
In the end I bought in the Carolinas a 91 W124.128 and I think it falls into the 1% category. I know the dubious value of Carfax but against this car there were only 3 entries. BTW a little while ago there was on VCR craigslist a W124
TDT ex Jpn for $8,900.00. Also live in Mistysoggy. Cheers
