I finally got a chance to drive a 300D and it drove like a dream. brakes were very tight and the excelleration felt instant. he wanted $5,600 for it but it needs tires and the front winshield is cracked all the way across...is it still worth it?

WHICH CARS DO MERCEDES SAY IS THEIR BEST???
The W124 300TE.
followed by the R107 300SL.
Why?.
Dependibility,Quality,and they have both held their values to the point where the SL is worth as much,if not more now, than when it was new.

Substitute the W124 300TE fora a W126 and your spot on.

Although I may be a little biased

Any W126 tuned by AMG I personally prefer the 500SEL AMG with the SOHC engine.
