I used to have 2 123's, but I sold both of them Friday and yesterday, and bought a 126. Heres a few pics. It was only $2,275, and Im planning on picking it up either today or tomorrow. Im not expecting to just buy it and not spend any money. I gotta paint the wheels probably. From the pictures it looks like the clear is comming off. Fix it up a bit. Hopefully its a good car and wont give me any major problems.

Welcome![:)]

If she was properly maintained there should be no problem. I’ve seen a good wash and some clay do wonders for tired finishes.

You bought without paying?
I’ve usually had a phone number, a few emails exchanged, and at least one live phone call before sending the check; perhaps I’m not the trusting type…

Im near Coney Island. Thats where my dads business is. I live in Breezy Point though. I just use Brooklyn cause its a fimilar name. Breezy Point is near Rockaway, near Belle Harbor, if know that area.

The car looks pretty good. Im gonna put clear taillights, and clear corners once I get it.

Vugely, may have gone there for a tow or 2. Companys I've worked for Delta Towing, Island Towing, Approved Towing, Jamaca Towing, Midtown( Brooklyn ), Midtown( Manhatten ) Ridge Towing( pre Parkway ) Most were with the scofflaw program... So 've been all over NYC. In a way I miss NYC, Tho if all else fails here, I can goto work at M&D in Brooklyn on Stillwell Ave... Then you'll see my car sitting around W 11th street in Bensonhurst

Tomorrow at 4 Im getting it. The guys kid was sick. This LeSabre Ive been driving around is garbage. It bounces all over the road. Terrible. I miss the Benz. I usually have crap on my dash. Today I took a turn In the Buick I take all the time with my Benz with all the stuff on the dash, and it went flying everywhere. Only thing I like about it is that this 3800 has balls. After driving the Diesel, its like a totally different thing. Im going 70 and I dont realize it. My digital camera is broken, which sucks because I cant take any pictures. Im gonna see if I can fix it.

Well your M103 will have balls as well so you’ll still need to be careful. And you’ll have a proper inline six, not that V nonsense. I’m reminded of the Saturn I drove last Christmas (against my will), what a cheap, flimsy little car. Once you’ve had a Benz…

Sorry if I sound like an ass now.. but you didn't find this out before hand? Also..in most cases deposits are non-refundable, mainly because its a sign that you're commited to purchase. Good luck with the outcome.. but it couldbe bad.

FINALLY GOT IT! Picked it up today. Its great. Paint is stunning. 199 is the color code. Interior needs some work. Drivers seat needs to be redone, and the center consol wood. I love it. Its such a heavy car. Going 80 in it was like nothing. Heres a few pics.
And some of these are of what the guy had at his place.
