Nice Purchase Jubin, congrats. Some more picks from your end would be fantastic. By the way, how much did the Merc cost you?

Why is it that no one writes about the most important aspect of purchase of a vehicle - its price.

Congrats jubin. I've been eyeing a lot of w123 and w124s these days in markets.
Hope I don't catch your bug

Congratulations on buying a W124 the best E Class ever made. The W124 is a testimony of what Mercedes build quality stood for. But one picture isnt enough, we need more to do justice.

Do update this thread regularly with your ownership experience of the star.

thanks a lot friends
1) 4 lacs i think is the right price.
2) no restoration / repair works. it drives as if its just out of the showroom ! !
3)more pictures surely coming soon as too occupied with ganpati celebrations
(actually planing a trip to lavasa so i'll click a lot of pics there)

Congrats for a great purchase Jubin. Enjoy unlimited miles of sheer driving pleasure in it. Check all oils and filters and mounts. if even the slightest doubt, have them changed.
Congrats again.
