I`m saying it has started as standard 124 than it was convrted to look like this




Than someone`s put it back to normal but left the bumpers on it
If you look at picture 2 on that addvert,you`ll ssee the gap between the headlights and the bumper

i have been looking at w124 convertables for a long time now (even though i cant afford one) i hope to have some money soon from house sale, so keeping my hand in

i have found several on ebay and found that prices seem to falling, there was a really nice white one with blue leather, about 100k full amg kit with 18 inch alloys, i thought it looked really nice

it was available for about 9k

you see lots for 12-15k but if you keep looking im sure you find find one for less than 10k

this looks a beauty, and its 9k

1994 MERCEDES E320 AUTO 320 CONVERTIBLE | eBay

looks to have front elec seats, fsh, and 112k miles

good luck with your search, please upload some pics once you find one

Nicely spotted d w124, I could see it isnít the same as mine; bud couldnít put my finger on how it differed.

I know thereís a chance Iíll get flamed for saying it; but I chose the 220 over the 320.( so long as itís got all the requirements on it you desire).

My reasons were;
The simpler 4 cylinder engine means maintenance costs are kept down.
Top speed and power has never been an issue for me, its more than spritely off the mark for me, then again Iíve never owned a racy (always have preferred comfort over speed) and it will sit very comfortably at 80 all day long if I asked it to .
Fuel economy, although I was told, when I was looking, that the 320 was just as economical as the 220; Still yet to be convinced on that one though.

Just my 2 pennyworth, but if speed and powers arenít critical on your list, donít rule out the 220. I didnít, and am more than happy.

Regards, and Good luck, R

Rigel, if your looking to sit @ 80 all day then i suggest you get cracking with the tempomat set up!

Only 2 of those loom left in germany, ive detailed the components needed for an M111 tempomat set up with connection pics.

great work Billy,

just read back through you tempromat post and it is something i would love to eventually do, but i have various other more pressing tasks (i fear the long grass may be looming for the near future).

What was your rationale for choosing the 220 engine?


Regards, R

At the time when i was looking I really wasnt bothered about the engine size tbh. I knew the 220 would be sufficiant for my needs. They are indeed much much simpler than the six pot, and generally easier to maintain. (also easier to carry out DIY, as there is more room)! I would be lying if the thought doesnt cross my mind now having owned it for a little while if i should have gone for a 320?

Having owned both now albiet the 320 for a short time, There is a huge difference in engine performance between the two i must say.
BUT - it wasn't enough to make me think im actually really missing out on anything and am still quite very content with the four pot.

however, if ever was time to buy another 124 coupe next time around, my heart would just go for the six pot.

Corrected that for you.

Tempomat is the term Merc use for cruise control.

Actually 'Tempomat' is the term Hella or Bosch coined for their first version of the product in the 1970's and MB took it over and used it since.

Sorry,

thatís my fault; Iíve miss-spelt ďtempomatĒ several different ways as Iíve tried to get my head around the thing.

Itís the only additional extra that I consider my car to be missing.
