A LITTLE HELP WITH A 300E PLEASE

My wife and I are about to get our first MB in 25 years. Back at the dawn of time we had a 230C and a 250. In the intervenieng years we raised our kids and finished off our teaching careers (neither one of which allowed for owning a marque we had grown to love). Now with plenty of time and some disposable income we're on the verge of buying an 86 300E from an original owner.

We'd be grateful for any insite you folks might wish to share about these models. As far as we know the only issue is a fuel delivery problem that will need attention. The body is immaculate and the interior has next to no wear other than the driver's seat. The old gentleman kept the car up on services until last year when he bought another newer model.

I've been away from MB for a long enough time that I don't have a feel for what is good and bad anymore, and your help on what to look out for would be gratefully appreciated.

Have a look around the w124 forum, designated to your kind of car.
It should answer any questions you may have about this model.
