I just bought a 95. non turbo wirh 196K, and the initial owner replaced wiring harness, vacuum pump, and water pump. The best thing is zero rust. I also have a 87 turbo wirh 384K. The rust is just starting to happen in small spots. Not stoplight racers off the line. Even so, I will never part with my two W124s. I love these cars!

I just bought a 95 with 196K. It had new wire harness put on when I bought it from the guy. I also have a 87 turbo diesel with 384K. I love both my W124s!

Great car - one of the best Mercedes ever produced. Since your car has a mechanical injection pump, it can help to depress and release the accelarator right before starting the engine and, in a cold start situations like this, gently accelerate the engine to a 1000 rpm so that it will come to a normal idle soon. Many miles to come...

BMW (Munich - Bavaria), Daimler Benz (Stuttgart - Baden-Württemberg). I think people from Baden-Württemberg state would be extremely exasperated over you calling them "Bavarian". These two states are usually very competitive among each other and people tend to hate one another.

Good start! Nice car with the engine of my dreams :-) Love those 4valve diesels! Not Bavarian I might add 😇 And unless the US models differ from the German ones...you don't need to cycle the key. It will glow 60sec no matter what the glow light tells (when working the light only like recommends the needed time). Wishing you good times with your beauty!

it was different in the w123 with the early 220D 240D and 300D engines,they used the old loop configuratioun style of pre-heaters!

Nikola Begonja According to a Mercedes promo video, they switched to 4valve for all models in 1992. But that might only be true for Germany and not the US...

Nikola Begonja The OM606 came in 1993...and as far as I know the OM603 did not yet have the slits on the side in the non-turbo-version. Interesting though why a 1995 model would not have the E300 signature?

later W124s have these vents fitted, even the naturally aspirated . The one featured here is the third - and last version of the great w124 chassis so it's all in good order here.

I can't speak for other model years but I can absolutely guarantee that every 1995 w124 diesel has a vent on the passenger side fender because as previously stated it is the air intake for the engine. doesn't matter if it is special edition or not.

What do you mean by 'the turbo didn't come until 98'? The 300 turbodiesel (OM603.960) was released in 1987.

I might add his is a w124 special edition... last year of the w124 body style for Mercedes before switching to the w210 body. that said, it had very sharp lines and features only available in the 95 model year for diesels and, 1994 and 1995 for the e320 gasoline model

Of course... these things were never meant to go fast. We used to have a w123 years ago, and I kinda know what to expect from the w 124. Rust isn't much of a problem, since Bosnia is a rather warm country, especially the south, so I'm not worried much about it. 2000€ gets you a looked after 2.5l diesel with an AC. That is my aim. Thanks for the adice, much appreciated :D

A quick diesel purge might actually smooth out the cold start idle. Mine had the same problem and the purge fixed it.

I wish you all the best on this! I found out recently that all my plugs were seized. I'm very sad to see my w124 slowly go to being advertised as "spare". Truly breaks my heart. There's so much to come out of this car even after 22 years of superb and uneventful service.
