Yeah. Very well maintained car indeed. It seems he has great love for this marvel. Good job Abhay. Maybe you can advice us (even do it professionally) on how to maintain the luxury imports. Many bhpians would love to hear as these big cars require little extra care to keep your snub value high.

It really is a very well maintained W123

Whenever I see a well maintained W123/124 it pushes me a little further towards making my decision buying one for myself!!!

Take care of it buddy!!

Abhay - Congratulations on such a lovely car.

I bought a 1984 240D a couple of months ago - white - 111k miles - in pretty good condition - runs great.

I get a lot of eyeballs when I drive it ... makes me feel very nice.

Such cars are for eternity

Nothing quite like a day when you spot a fine ol' Benz:

Sigh! What a beauty., I just can't have enough of the classic lines of these timeless beauties. Some more fodder for the thought that clean lines age better than curves - at-least when it comes to cars . Brilliant catch there @GTO. Thanks for cheering up my evening

This one is really immaculate. Just a beauty.

Really clean interiors which no sign on messing around and it seems that the owner has also managed to ward of rust which is so common in these cars.
