1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Description

This is for all W124 lovers... You know who you are!

I'm the second owner of this accident free, original paint, original glass example of a 040 Black on Black MB Tex 1995 E300D Diesel (124.131, OM606.910 NA), that I have owned since 2004.

The car is in great shape as you can see from the photos given its age. The color combination really sets this car apart from others being offered.

But its not just the color that makes this car unique... Being that maintenance was required as time passed, I decided to not just use standard replacement parts relative to this model.

Here are some more photos before I get into the details of this car...

This car is one of my favorite cars ever, but equally admired and possibly more is the 92-94 500E/E500. That being the case, full suspension upgrade was done using Sportline parts specific to the W124 500E/E500, and brakes specific to the W124 400E/E420 line.

Every nut, bolt, and bushing was replaced using correct 500E parts. Springs and shocks are Koni Yellow adjustable shocks with Eibach springs ordered from Germany for extra load being the car is a diesel (2518.140). #1 bump pad in the front and #3 bump pad in the rear so it levels out with weight.

Front sway bar is the euro "Limo" model which is a even thicker diameter than the stock 500E's, and the rear sway bar is 500E specific.

Zimmermann vented, cross drilled rotors front and rear (extremely rare) with ATE 4 piston front calipers, and matching rear calipers as well. Calipers are fresh new units and not rebuild salvage from a doner car. Wheel hub bearings were replaced also, front and rear.

Rear subframe was removed and rebuilt with new Sportline bushings, degreased, repainted, and rustproofed. Same was done to the undercarriage of the car while the subframe was down.

The rear differential is the rare sought after ASD version, as the hydraulic fluid bottle in the engine pic is the give away, and yes, the ASD relay module works and the system is operational.

Rear lower control arms have the K-Mac adjustable bushings installed so that the alignment can be dialed in correctly using Sportline settings on the Hunter machine. http://k-mac.com/mercedes/k-mac_mercedes_2016_catalog.pdf

Wheels are 17x8 with a ET45 offset, with Yokohama S4 tires, 215 front, 245 rear. I feel the five spoke wheels tastefully tie everything in.

All these parts are getting rarer by the day and took months to source from Germany. The car rides and handle amazing. Really not much more I can say about that. No squeaks or rattles, just a new car feel that is quite wild in a car of this age.

Mechanically, I had the head professionally rebuilt as well with new OEM intake and exhaust valves being the glow plugs failed and seized from age. Injectors redone with Bozio nozzles, and water pump, belts, etc. were done as well.

The wiring harness was redone in 2012 and is a necessary job to be done in any W124 regardless of age or mileage.

Transmission was refreshed with new shift kit springs and rebuilt torque converter by ProTorque to remedy lazy shifting. Shifts are sharp and responsive. Very lively feel.

Exhaust system was redone with new OEM resonator and muffler, and the oxidation converter was removed for added performance.

Fuel tank was removed and decontaminated of diesel sludge by acid wash and boiling.

The car also comes with an authentic, original 1st Gen AMG front bumper with fog lights as shown in the photos. It is not a reproduction and was bought via ebay in the UK.

About 2,000 miles have passed since the work has been done. For those that know the 606 engine, this car has the personality of a hot rod, and with all the upgrades, it's a great package.

Now, for those interested in a project, and appreciate and understand the work that's been done so far, its ready for the next level.

Yes, the paint is original and shines nice, but it is original. The headliner started to drop this year. The sunroof decided to take a vacation. AC works but the blower could use a replacement. A center chunk of the AMG bumper broke off clean during an oil change off the frame of the lube shop's floor pit which needs to get repaired. 500E Sportline seats in black would be a great upgrade along with a Sportline steering box and steering wheel.

I planned on installing a custom audio system and the front door panel is currently out and rear deck and side panels were removed for Dynamat, which was done and throughout the trunk area as well. The original radio was replaced by a Continental unit that is period correct visually but has modern features like bluetooth audio and handsfree calling. See mic by the radio in console pic.

The car would come with Jehnert lower front door speaker panels that replace the existing map pocket and speaker panel for a dual woofer install. http://www.jehnert.de/en/shop/doorboards-soundsystems/mercedes-en/e-class/w-124-sedan-t-model/mercedes-e-class-w124-sedant-modell-doorboards-with-3-way-soundsystem/

The thought of doing the wide body fenders of the 500E crossed my mind, but the panels are so original and straight that I would have a hard time cutting into it. For those with a stronger stomach, the option exists and would turn the car visually into a 500E. Visually...

Thanks for your interest.
