I don't know. Depends on your application really. The W126 would be better for long trips as its cabin noise is lower, but the W124 handles better and is lighter. I would go for the W124 myself.

By the way the W124 in the picture is not a 1991 model, it's pre 1990, so maybe it's 1989, but anyway I owned the W124 before they are great cars, I would go for the W126 for a try they're also nice cars, and I think there's no reason to favor one over the other, both are great cars, it's your choice.

Both are great, but I would purchase the 300SE. I'm partial to the ride and feel of the old 450SEL.

W126. Very comfortable seating on any seat. Long distance driving is a joy.Powerful enough for short distance sprint and pick up if need be. If the engine is good, just need to change all the rubber mounting, coupling, shock absorbers and the car will be real good.I change cars every 2 to 3 yrs but my W126 had been with me for 7 years now.
