The car has covered 331,000 miles since new and has been serviced every 3,000 miles without fail. I have every single document service available to back up mileage. Every old MOT and pretty much every receipt of money that was spent on the car.
The car starts up every time without fail and runs very well. I’d happily drive this car to the south of France tomorrow.
The only negatives about this car is the rear arches have some rust starting to appear now, It can be used as is but it is something that will need work in the future no doubt.
Apart from that she is a good honest classic that has many many more years left in here, With the amazing 2.4 diesel achieving excellent Mpg this could easily be a daily driver as I have used it.
Bare in mind, she is 34 years old and there is the old blemish here and there, she is not perfect but very useable or improve over the years. These W123 estates are very sought after now because they can be very eco-friendly and be run on BIO-Diesel or similar without major modification.
