Weâ€™ve been featuring some high-end metal here on GCFSB this week. Itâ€™s always nice to dream but ever the practical one, Iâ€™m always on the lookout for a good buy. A car like this 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300E 2.8 for sale in Georgia appeals to my sensible side. We just saw a 1991 300E 4Matic with 71k miles sell for $4,250. Some of us may not want to take on the hassles that come with extra axles, so this rear-drive 300E 2.8 with just over 60,000 miles would be a good choice.
Thirty years have passed since the introduction of the W124 Mercedes-Benz E-class range. This is a car that had big shoes to fill, as the W123 range was beloved the world over for its quality, durability and rock solid diesel engines. Arriving in the middle of the 1980s, this new mid-sized Mercedes designed by Bruno Sacco brought the company’s traditional styling hallmarks into a new era. This car would spawn coupe, cabriolet and estate variants as well as introduce four-wheel drive as an option and a few high performance V8 variants. The W124 would carry on into the mid-1990s, succeeded by the W210 E-class with its radical four-headlamp front profile.
Since we’re in the middle of winter in many parts of the US, we’ll start off by looking at this 1991 300E 4Matic for sale in California offered at no reserve.

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.
