W123 Brake Pedal intermittant fault

Hi There,

Sorry if someone has posted similar but I really need your help. I have bought a W123 and use it as my daily driver. In the last month it has not missed a beat over the 500 miles I have driven despite having been standing for a while prior to me buying it.

The ONLY fault is that on two occasions the brake pedal and lost it firmness and been very soft at first travel then harder at the base of the pedal travel. The car still stopped but was a bit scary. This fault is very infrequant having occured twice and then next time of using the car the pedal is back to perfect! There is no loss of fluid and I have mechanic happy to help fix the problem but I dont want to start buying parts that arent the right parts.

Thanks in advance for any assistance
