Hi there

Hello im phill and I joined this forum because i may soon be a owner of a merc.

Specifically a 1987 w124 300d with a om603 turbo in it.

I just had a few questions before going through with it.

1. They want 900 dollars i assume thats pretty good- read rest.

2. What are common problems with these cars? what should i specificaly check for for when going to test drive / look at it?

its an auto obviously, i dont think they gave the om603 turbos manuals in the US.

the guy says the motors good trannys good but has faded paint and other cosmetic issues. tear in leather in seats etc.

and some body rust.

how are these things with rust?

any help would be greatly appreciated. i really do want to buy this car but if it wont be worth it then ill have to wait till another deal comes my way.

Thanks!
