It might be o.k., but I think you're on your own if you buy a car from them (i.e., cash and carry). They look more like a shop that buys cars at auction for a quick turnover rather than a place...

This could be caused by lots of things. The first thing I would do is replace the "over voltage protection relay" ("OVP"). It is a well known problem with the w124 and is known to cause all sorts...
