Further to the great care taken maintaining correctly, the car was always garaged and used sparingly, the underside is quite incredible for a UK car, corrosion free as you can see from the pictures we have taken. The MOT history further supports this.  

A full drivers handbook is present with the Mercedes extended warranty book issued in January 1996, fully stamped service book, sales brochure with technical specifications and all the original keys. 

The W124 was the last of the truly well-made E-Class variant built by Mercedes, the Engineers being in control prior to the ill-fated Chrysler merger when quality significantly declined. With values of good quality examples of its predecessor, the W123 rising to heady levels, a great example W124 is a sound choice for a solid future investment and still a great car to own and drive by modern day car standards.
