I have found a mechanic for my W124, who is passionate about 124s. Will use his services first and let you know if he is worth. Keep in touch. I will keep you posted about my W124.

If they have worked on Classic (pre-1997) cars before, use them. Experience is fast disappearing in India.

I don't partcipate here much anymore after the admins refused permission to post a genuinely Classic car focussed show I produced, but if anyone has questions about their W124 and want to know which parts to get and from where, feel free to PM me.

Enjoy the W124 (or earlier MBs if you can find them) as they really are the only cars built to stand the test of time on Indian roads!

Hi! We had bought a Mercedes Benz W124 E-220 in February 2019. The car had been sitting for a while and didn't crank. Thereafter, apart from some minor things here and there. the service included the following work:

(i) Engine Oil
(ii) Oil Filter
(iii) Fuel filter
(iv) Gear oil
(v) Coolant
(vi) Brake fluid
(vii) Front and Rear disk pads were replaced
(viii) Spark plugs replaced
(ix) Fuel Pump replaced
(x) New battery and tyres
(xi) Front suspension overhaul.

A few months ago, the engine began to misfire badly and was shown to an independent garage that we usually visit. Apparently, the car needs a new ignition coil and some other electrical work. However, the availability of spare parts has been an issue so the car ended up standing at the workshop for around 4 months. We recently decided to get the car back home and while doing so, a portion of the exhaust fell off. This is the reason the car sounds more like a tractor as of now.

It would be greatly appreciated if fellow W124 owners can suggest an expert in or around Chandigarh, to diagnose and fix the current issue being faced.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jagatvir,
You can contact "Car Doctors Amritsar" they can help in Chandigarh as well. I have just shifted from Delhi to Chandigarh. Getting new and used spares is not an issue there. For any parts for W124 you can also connect with Mr. Manoj from Capital car company (Delhi). Let me know if any other help needed.

Regards
Gaurav

Unfortunately, I cannot send you a PM either, quickly complete 25 posts, and we will be able to communicate.
Let's get your car up and running

Does anyone have any leads on a clean W124 in Gurgaon/ Delhi with valid (and obviously out of state) registration?
TIA

Hello,

Require an oil sensor for the E250. Kindly let me know if it is available anywhere.

Thanks in advance.
