WTB - W124 / 300E

Greetings all, I am deployed overseas with the Navy and have been considering a new Focus through the Exchange New Car Sales program. I had an epiphany and realized what a colossal waste of money that would be, and most importantly would leave me unsatisfied and with a car payment.

I am looking for a 300E, preferably a later model like 92 or 93. My ideal car would be the dark gray with gray leather, and the 3.0. I would be open to an early E320, or even the 400E as well but I prefer the M103. Prefer RWD but would take a 4matic.

Yes, I see W124s all over CL for $2k-2500, but they are beat down, or salvaged, or the sunroof doesn't work, or needs a head gasket but "it still runs okay"...you've all heard it before! I even found a 500E that is "hand-built". This is because a tree fell on it.

I would rather buy from someone who knows MBs and can provide a service history, so I thought I would look here. I'll be headed home soon to Sacramento and am willing to travel a bit for the right vehicle.

Thanks folks, looking forward to returning to my MB roots. Dad drove a '69 280SL for years and mom put 320k on an '89 560SEL before a semi clipped it while it was parked.
