Hello to all MB lovers ! As in the titel : from Europe, Belgium, Brussels - capital city of UE .
Finally got to the MB club, too ! I am sure I'll enjoy this forum. I 'll do my best to come and share all things concerning this MB 250D W 124 / 1988 that I just bought 1 month ago as a 2d,3rd,4tth ...?... hand car.
Nearly dark at 18h that evening when I discovered it. Great looking from the outside and clean inside.! One quick look under the car with the help of a torch : no dust, no rust . Nearly unbelievable for such an old car in our country where we use salt on roads during winter days when necessary . Could even read a white MB self-stick label on the rear suspension arm. Seems to have been kept in a garage when not on the roads !
It took me just 5 min before deciding to buy it . Even without driving it on the road. The engine started at the first try , the car parked outside in cold winter weather conditions with the thermometer around " minus 5°C " ( = 23°F) . Some vibrations and after 5 secondes , the engine run at +/- 600rpm by itself.... without having to push on the accelerator pedal. When accelarating, a very discreet dark smoke only got out of the exhaust pipe.

The next day , the car was paid ....2100 € ( = +/- 2700 USD) and parked in front of my home !

Found it on a 2dhand internet site , here. --> That will give you an idea about car's conditions and prices " to discuss , to bargain ", here in Europe . Hum ! Enjoy !

As nice and clear days are coming now with the spring in the horizon , with outside temperatures between 5 and 18°C ( = 40~60°F), I'll have more time to check evething about that MB 250D W 124 and learn how to manage it. With the help of all the members , here !

Thanks in advance ! See you !
