1994 Mercedes E280 Automatic FSH For Sale

This is a good, usable example of the bombproof W124. I have owned the car for almost two years, and have enjoyed every moment. If it was an estate I'd be keeping it.

The 2.8 litre six cylinder engine runs very sweetly with no smoke or untoward noises, having had a top end rebuild shortly before I bought it. At the same time the expensive engine wiring loom was replaced - these are prone to breaking down causing a misfire, and the car shows no signs of trouble in this respect. Mechanically, the rest of the car seems tight and rattle free, with recent brakes providing excellent stopping power. The four speed automatic gearbox appears in good health. It rides on a matching set of recent Hankook tyres on refurbished nine hole alloys. The car has a full service history, as well as many receipts for work carried out by the previous owners.

The interior belies the cars 192000 miles. The anthracite cloth shows extremely little wear, including to the drivers bolster. The black carpets have original Mercedes overmats all of which are in excellent condition, and the walnut trim is in great condition, though the glovebox lid is missing. All instrument and switch lighting is working with new bulbs, and the rear headrest retract as they should. The tilt and slide sunroof works perfectly. It is by far the best W124 interior I have seen, and is a lovely place to be. There car has aftermarket remote central locking which works fine. Only two issues I know of internally: there is a nice aftermarket Alpine stereo fitted, which works great with CDs but there is no radio signal from the non-working aerial, and the heater works beautifully, but only produces warm air.

As usual, the front wings were rusty so I have replaced them and also tidied up the rear wheel arches. As a result, the car has been painted front and rear including the bonnet and boot lid. Whilst this work was undertaken the usual hole under the washer bottle was repaired. The sill covers were removed and the jacking points cleaned up, treated and painted, and the rear subframe mounts checked. If you know your W124s, these are the main points to check and this car is absolutely sound. The only area of corrosion of note is a small scab next to the sunroof.

The car is a great daily driver and has a truly bank-vault build quality. It is MOT'd until 19th September 2020. It is currently on SORN, but I have a short private drive. It can be viewed in Dumfries, 30 miles from Carlisle and just ten miles from the M74.
