I recently added to my family's little collection. A first-year W124 to go along with dad's W126 and mom's W163.


Here's a little photoshop action for dramatic effect:


In any case, for an almost two decade old car, this little gem has barely 115k miles, and looks pretty much new on the inside. Bought it from the original owner (elderly gentleman who took great care of it).



(That Becker radio is out of there now, its place taken by a Blaupunkt cd/mp3 unit)


The rims were faded a bit, so my dad painted them the standard Mercedes 140 silbergrau. That's about as good as 15s can look [:D]



And now a question for W124 owners. This is a 1986 model, with a 4 speed automatic w/ OD transmission. The question is, what is your engine rpm around 75-80mph? Mine is something stupid high like 3500-3600, and I was wondering if the gears are short or if my stuff's broken. Thanks in advance.

The revs are correct. Its annoying I know but when you go to pass someone at that speed you'll understand why. I believe its designed so with revs that high the power is always on tap at high speeds.

From the looks of your 300E,the fronts door looks bit darker?Been in an accident before?
Carfax came out clean, but my dad (who works for German Auto Body) told me the instant he saw it that the door's been painted. Doesn't bother me, I get all my bodywork done for free by him at GAB [:D]

I drove my 300E to work. My boss sees me and says,
"Hey Miran, nice Mercedes..looks like you're pretty well off. I guess you won't be needing that raise, then."

Time to find an 93 E320 trunk lid and headlights! [:p]

Man, that's great you have a hook-up on paint & body.
Yeah, the previous owner didn't do a great job of colormatching.I'm sure your pops is going to hook it up for you though. Just have him colormatch and paint all the blk trim , bumpers etc...as well

Glad I don't have that kind of boss.

My boss sees me and says, whoa, can I have a ride after office hours?

Hey Cowtown... nice quote!

Remember, it's not plagiarism if you don't remember where you got it.
