Say you have under $10,000 to spend on a car. Do you do the sensible thing and go with a nearly new compact or subcompact that, if you are lucky, may have some of its factory warranty left? Or do you do tempt fate and go with that older luxury vehicle youâ€™ve always been craving? Fortunately, thereâ€™s a middle of the road example: the W124 Mercedes-Benz E class. Rock solid build quality, relatively affordable running costs in comparison to other German iron of the era and a healthy dose of leather, wood and other goodies to comfort passengers. This Smoke Silver example for sale in Indiana has just over 63,000 miles on the odometer, leaving it barely broken in.

While Smoke Silver isn’t likely to offend, it does give off a bit of that Berlin taxi feel with this 300E. In the very least, it’s not as pedestrian as the Light Ivory most of those taxis were painted, though. The asking price for this one is right at the top of the market of what you could expect to pay for one of the last of the pre-facelift W124s. Ownership by a Mercedes-Benz technician and having the all-important wiring harness replaced should assure potential buyers that this is not your run of the mill E class.
