Don't know if the wipers were maintenance-intensive. It is the power jets that gives owners lot of headaches.
When I bought W124 couple years ago, the headlight wipers were all messed up. I absolutely don't need them in California, but I restored them for the looks. Didn't spend a fortune for new blades, so it slides on flat rubber now, since the sharp part of blades broke off.
Looking good and sure makes it unique.
