200 Manual - Ex South africa W124 1990

Hi guys,

Is anyone able to comment on the rarity of the above model ??

Have discovered one for sale - knowing that it will not be very powerful, I am more interested because I have never seen this combination.

Cheers

Pretty rare in the US. Only 200 series w124's I have seen in person are in Spain.

Good luck

If its right hand drive its not that common a model, but saying that they are fairly common in left hand drive in Europe.

I used to have a RHD 200TE with a manual 5 speed box and it was a good car. In day to day driving its was plenty fast enough and it gave good fuel economy.

What price are they asking for the one in South Africa...the reason I ask is that cars in South Africa tend to be quite expensive.

Hi Kiwi
I own a similar vehicle in South Africa. She has done 157000Km and is in showroom condition. Would be interested to know what price you have been quoted for the one you are looking at
