Hi all,

I bought my first MB last weekend, and think these cars are just gorgeous.

I was going to get a W123 280CE, but this came along and just could not resist it. [:)]

Here are some pics:

N8ice exterior color. As a matter of fact, that was the same color of my 300E before I had it repainted. Ohhh the memories [;)]
Be sure to keep it clean, and have those fluids flushed.

Why one of those German taxis? Those who asked you this are either very stupid or very uneducated.
The next time someone asks you that, ask them whether they thought why they were used as taxis in the first place. But do that only after you've punched'em in the nose first. [:D]

...did you happen to notice where the steering wheel is located in this car? That's called a fire extinguisher and it is located there for quick and easy access in case of emergency... and unless you have really oddly shaped legs, it isn't usually in the way, most euro-spec or in this case Australian cars have those there and I think it makes a lot of sense.

I think the extinguisher is a PC move over in Europe or something. Car fires are for old Ford pintos. Maybe they are there because it can be used as a self defense tool since citizens dont have many rights to carry arms over there. To get back to topic, nice looking car. Good find[8D]

I disagree with part of what you're saying. Just because a car is used as a taxi doesn't mean it's a must-have. I've spent a lot of time in the back of NYC taxis and I'd be awfully mad at myself if I ever thought about even possibly buying a Crown Victoria lol. Everything else you said I agree with, however. [:D]

PB, you're right. But a 124 is no Crown Vic. For some reason, the Crown Vic (and several other US-badged rear-drive sedans, for that matter) are very popular here in Arabia. Now I don't know what the hell is wrong with Saudis, but they love'em! They are torquy, reliable cars, and their parts are dirt-cheap, but personally, I wouldn't want to be caught dead in a Crown Vic [:D]
