Hi Hari,

Sad to know that your engine is now not working.. infact I have two more friends searching for the same 280 engine M110.. those are both w123 coupe cars. Engines are scrap but body is good.

Why dont you try to import an engine from dubai / sharjah etc.. they are asily available there.

Maybe you have some contacts in the UAE who can help you?

I will ask around here in Bahrain also, but maybe rare to find here.

Nice 230E! do you know of any w123 in good condition for sale in Kerala? looking for petrol 230 or 280 or 300 diesel.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you so much for guidance. Im working in Muscat. If i tried to import the engine it will cost huge. I have informed the mechanic to chk for engine in India. Worrisome is M110 DOHC wont fit for my car it should SOHC. If i want put DOHC I need to modify the chassis. Well waiting fpr some good news from my mechanic. If no SOHC then I will go DOHC engine and ready to alter my chassis.

W123-230 or even 240. It worth buying, but u know in India owners maintaining the car in good shape very hard to find. Its not so easy to search a car having good interiors and more over the finding a right seller for good value is further more hard. But luckily I have got a contact of very clean car through my mechanic, and the owner is 80Yrs old gentleman and too rich guy. so he taken care well.

Well i will have a word with my mechanic and will keep you posted, if any.
