    Guys just wanna ask your opinion about this car, it's really old and not as appealing as a W123. Is it still worth it to have one to be used as a daily driver? (price is very very cheap btw) Sobrang bagal ba nito? How about fuel consumption and parts, is it the same with a 200D W123? 55ps lang ba? Your replies will be very much appreciated. thanks po...

    Lance_R: Pretty much same engine as my W123 200D, mabagal? Medyo, especially off the line... at paakyat, but it's a 20+Yr old diesel... pwedeng pwede nadin for city driving. I have no complaints about mine in terms of daily usage. Mabigat lang talaga kaha. Understand that even newer diesel auvs here are under 90hp so medyong di ka naman maiiwan or something pag city driving.

    MB diesel engines are matibay talaga, basta alaga ang injector at fuel filters. I get an AVERAGE of 10KM/Li with my W123. Kung walang traffic like mga xmas break, holy week, 14-15k/li is not hard to achieve. Best record ko with 60liters of fuel (65-70 liters ang tank) mga 3 weeks (x7 days x 50km/day = 1050KM) or 17.5km/li. Di norm yun, as in intentional tipid driving during the non-traffic months yun... hehe but kaya kung kaya... 10KM/li is average. Tipid padin diba considering diesel is like 25% cheaper than gas.

    Parts, di ako sure, but i think medyo madami rin syang parts and mura lang, maybe not as abundant as W123, pero not as hard as older models naman.

    You have to be wary of rust. Yun ang mahirap ayusin... other than that, the engine and drivetrain should check out ok just like any other car...

    Good luck...

    Punta ka MBCP madami nadin threads dun about shopping for a diesel MB.

    Magkano nga pala offer? dapat under 100K yan unless maganda talaga.
