1995 e320 wagon project

Thought I'd stop in and introduce myself. I have been lurking on the w124 page and decided to share my work.

My wife is driving a pampered 1995 wagon e320 that I got her for an 'in between' vehicle. We picked it up in near new condition with only 80,000 miles for just $6000 back in July. It had only been used as a winter car here in FL by an elderly couple.

We had planned on getting her a newer Yukon Denali or Escalade and were saving up the cash. She is fond of the more custom vehicles and her wagon is pretty close to a grocery getter as it sits. NOT her style! I first found this forum when her OEM stereo went out and I needed to install a new one. This site helped immensely.

While lurking I found an interesting video of a w124 being nearly demolished and it kept running. That prompted me to ask my mechanic (certified by Mercedes) what he thought. He told me I was an idiot if I sold it and got a GM instead. So, here I am and these are my coming projects:

-Install body effects kit
-tighten up suspension
-install 20" wheels and new tires
-apply AMG style fender spreaders
-remove trim mouldings
-new paint job
-tinted windows
-keyless entry

I have already done the stereo, new brake job, thermostat, and water pump.

Feel free to chime in with your experiences and I'll post my progress.
