Advice buying 1993, 300E 2.8

Hi All,

I going to check the following benz:
1993, 300E, 2.8

118, 000 miles
original owner
Asking $7000.

What should I look for? Any checklist? I will go and check it out and if I like it, I will take to my mechanics (Enrique) to PPI. What should I look for? I have 1988 300E, and I love it when everything is working fine.

I read through this form, that the W124 is trouble car comparing to the W123? Does this apply to this car.

Thanks alot,


1989 300E, 152k miles
1988 300E, 172k miles

I just paid 8K (incl TTL) for a '95 with 104K. I have seen a couple of '95 E320's in New Orleans and in Houston with an asking of 10K but I could tell they'd deal. I located mine through and took a drive to see it. Couldn't have been happier with the process.

In other words, I think you can get a little more for the same or a little less.

OTOH, you're the better judge for your area.
