Hi from Australia

Hi all,

Im looking at buying my first Merc, a W124 300E 24V. Its priced well with a leather interior and 145000km. Ill be looking at it in the next couple of days.

OK I know it probably gets asked all the time but what things should I look out for that are relevant to the W124? In particular an Australian delivered example. I do expect the dasboard, wood veenier and paint to have suffered somewhat in our harsh sun. I am familiar with some of the obvious common stuff that you check on all cars. Any tips or advice welcome.

Im really excited as Ive always loved the W124, the wife has given it the green light and Ive found a relatively low km 24V version.

Thanks in advance and hopefully the next time you hear from me Im the proud new owner of a w124.
