Hey guys. I’m considering getting a W124 in about 2-3 years time hahaha but was just thinking about it and I was curious to hear some opinions.
Im currently 18, planning to use the money I’ll be getting in NS and earning while waiting for Uni to buy my first car. Was looking at the W124 because I love the classic look and the price point seems roughly right.
But thats where I have my first problem; say I want to own a W124 of good driveable condition for 5 years with a 5 year COE. How much should I be looking at in total? (Including road tax, maintenance etc.) [assuming COE remains at current prices]
secondly, is owning this as a first car a good idea? I’m interested in cars but I have little to no knowledge about maintaining one or any details beyond engine capacity and horsepower haha. So I’m concerned about maintenance and even knowing which one to buy.
indeed, it’s still a little early, but I would just like to know a little more about what to expect should I begin looking for one and owning one. Hope you guys can give some input. Cheers!
