Thumbs up W126 300SE new owner

Hi, I just bought a 1989 W126 300SE.

I have wanted one of these for years but could never afford one until now.

I love the styling, definitely a future classic.

It has two minor problems, a large tear in the drivers seat bolster section and the rear nearside electric window does not work. Apart from that drives like a dream, hardly any corrosion and would you believe it has done 165K miles and still going strong.

Take care all.
