Hi Akshay !
I'm brand new on this group and literally came across this forum last week, while I was looking for ways to refurbish my dad's W124. I must've been around 4, maybe 5 when he bought it BUT the memories with the car outdo the hassles that that I may have to face in order to get it fixed. I tried contacting dealerships like T&T Motors in New Delhi and Panjab Motors in Punjab but they either don't seem interested in the project or realize that arranging the spare-parts would be a HUGE hassle. Any guidance as to how or who to contact regarding spare parts would be highly appreciated !

Best,

FuzzySheikh

Hi FuzzySheikh,

Welcome on board!!

The car looks clean, did you check what went wrong with the car? Contacting the dealers will be waste of time, most do not have stock of the spares. You can order it online from many websites. Find a local mechanic, who can handle this car. It is the bigger task for you!

I'm currently restoring an already clean W124 E300

Best,
Hem

Hey, that looks like a clean car.
I can definitely help you with sourcing the parts needed for your car.
Where is the car located, and what's the current situation, does it run?
When was it last started?

Great thread. just read through since I recently got hooked on to this generation after seeing a beautiful W124 300CE here in Singapore. After that I have started noticing that there are quite a lot of W124 Es out here. Most are petrols. Very keen to pick one up.

Akshay and others who have shared their cars here- can you throw some info around costs of upkeep ? are all parts imported from Germany or MBIL supports this generation even now ?

Most Running parts for service like filters and brake pads are available off the shelf in most major cities. Only a few MB dealers down south support these cars, rest, just don't entertain you.

Recently I had a major issue with the car, and I needed some parts urgently.
Ordered via a website based out of Estonia, and parts, were at my doorstep in 5 days

More updates on the car soon, she has been through a lot lately.
