Hi all!
A great hello from the UK Midlands!

I have joined MB World after many months of using the site for advice on certain MB issues that have been addressed.

A little about me,

I used to own a W124 230E. It had approx 148K miles on the clock and was a basic model, champagne gold with brown interior.

One thing i loved about this car was the reliability, after addressing the missfire problem caused by the main fuse for the oxygen sensor being blown!

I loved the way this car handled and was a blast to drive as i was only 18 at the time. Something i have missed terribly since it was sold is the driving joy, and reliaility.
Even though it was a 89 model, it had no oil leaks what so ever, had good compression, and it never threw up any fault codes (Primarily because it didnt have the capability to do so) as it was electronically simple!

Since then, i have now tunrned 23, and now think its time to mess with another Merc! This time however, i am looking for a Coupé, and there are no coupés like those made by Mercedes during the 80's - Early 90's.

If anyone can point out the main differences/ advantages/ dissadvantages of the 300 CE vs 300 CE - 24V, please do let me know.
I am also looking at the 500 SEC. One of my all time favourite motorway eaters.

After i find one, Classic insurance here i come! lol

Look forward to chating to you guys soon!
