Interested in getting a W123
Hi, I am new to this forum and I am quite keen to get a W123 Model. I have browsed in the web and seems like is a pretty much reliable car. I would really appreciate if anyone could advise me on the following:

Ease of obtaining spare parts for this model?
I believe most workshops can repair/service his model.
Is this model prone to rust?
Any data on fuel consumption ?
What are the main things I should lookout for when scouting around for a used unit?

As long as I can get a unit with clean and good condition interior, no rust, well maintained engine, no major accidents, I might consider buying it. Paintwork is not a big issue as I can do it up later.

also dependant on engine type, transmission
type & overall health of d mechanicals...


What are the main things I should lookout for

Re: Interested in getting a W123
dear mxthrottle,welcome to benz family.
congrulation for your choosing mb as your car,
no doubt w123 once call as king on the road due to its reliability almost at any road situation.if u from east coast shud be no prob,plenty of w123 can be found (tganu and kelantan)including parts and technical job.other places im not sure,but i do heard w123 parts can be found at taiping,sg petani and jb(im not sure which part of jb).
since its already more than 20yrs of age,few things to be considered.
1 :gear box and gear speed(humming sound during
driving due to high mileage)
2 :long shaft(also produce sound and body vibration)
3 :under carriage booth(like arms,suspension and
caster).
if you dont mind spending a few thousand rm on changing all worn parts im sure you wont regret doing it.even the newer model cant match its road handling,stability and comfortability.keep searching,sure you will come across a good one to buy.good luck.

Actually the W123 250 does not come with the 'E' at the end because 'E' stands for Fuel Injection back then before Mercedes Benz rebadged it to E-class as medium class models. The W123 250 comes in a 2.5 liter inline 6 with twin stromberg carburetor, this engine is a similar engine that runs the W114 250.

W123 is an indeed reliable car before it was succeeded by the legendary W124. It is such a strong car that it would never let u down bro. Hence, restoring this unit brings a closer relationship between u and your Mercedes. It is an ongoing project bro when u restore this modern classic unit.
