You would probably get more, and possibly quicker, answers if you start this thread on the W124 forum (just scroll down from the main forum choices). That is where you are more likely to find previous, or current, owners of the M-B you are considering.
The only comments I can make with some level of intelligence, is that the diesel emissions are actually less polluting than the gasoline engines, believe it or not. PLUS, that the W124 series from Mercedes, if properly maintained, will run practically forever!
Lastly, the Chevelle "Super Sport" 396, for example, was a fine car in it's day. If the one you are looking at is in good condition, I think you can buy a 300D for less money, and have more car.
Hope this helps,
Mercedes Benz - Das beste oder nichts!
