Wow!!! Wish I had a few extra grand laying around somewhere and I'd snag this in a heartbeat instead of a W126 SEC.

No sportline badges on front fenders, and no LE on trunk. Was the car debadged?
The drivers seat upper side bolster toward the door usually shows the wear most. A better pic might help.
The yellow orange dash dials and needles look a bit washed out for 44k miles, but perhaps that's your camera.
Very nice car and good luck with the sale.

I think the sportline was debadged from the factory.

it came with No badges straight from Mercedes, the 1993 LE HAD NO BADGES on fenders or Trunk,
I can guarantee the mileage is right, a Carfax report would also support the mileage being accurate

And Vin would verify Sportline option, as would the original window sticker.

I don't know myself, but I think 124 Sports came with a smaller steering wheel, with the bottom spokes closer together. I don't see that type wheel in these pictures. Was that Sport wheel only a 124 thing?

Anyway, a nice looking low mileage car... good luck with sale

A few things i noticed.
-steering wheel has quite a bit of wear
-rear seat tops stitches split almost. Need a better picture
-rear headrest has signs of the car sitting in the sun for a long time. Pic angle maybe?
-seats are covered in armor all or some other type
-dash dials are a bit faded as mentioned
-headlight covers are a bit faded for a 44,000 mile car. Unless the sun there is really strong.
-carpets has a bit wear for the mileage.


Note this is just my own opinion based on the pics.
If you can post closer pics of the car that would be great.
Still a nice car to get. Good luck with the sale..

Moral of the story, the car looks like it's been sitting in the sun. The 3rd brake light shows bubbling in the picture and is a dead giveaway. The rest of the interior and the foglight covers also attest to sun baking. NO BIG DEAL. All 1993 limited editions were Sportlines - they did NOT come from the factory debadged. You're missing the badges and that's all.


BUT, I wouldn't let that deter me from a low mileage example. If the underbody is clean, maintenance records are complete and follow mileage, then a buyer would have a nice car.

You're in a buyers market now sir, your car is nice, but not nice enough for anyone who is looking to "collect". Good luck though, I really hope you get what you're asking lol

I sold a 93 LE last year and had every piece of documentation from day one. Certificate of authenticity, letter from Pres/CEO MB NA etc.. No badging from the factory.
