The beauty of it is that while the interior is crap, the driving dynamic is sketchy, the styling is boring, the efficiency is meh and the speed is slow. This thing was built with proven technology and has very little foibles. Change the fluids as you should and it should last as long as you...
Very nice! 1.8 with 4A/T?
I have basically the same car (2011) with 1.6 and it's the most resilient car I have ever had a fortune to own. I only uses it occasionally and leaving it stationary for weeks, and when I use it all of it is done flat out. Often the crusing speed is 112mph. Pretty...

Glad you like it!
Thank you! Been enjoying it a lot.
Can't handle the JDMTYTE goodness? :P
The original 13 inches steelies...
About 9 months ago I sold my W124 after getting fed up with trying to sort all the electrical gremlins on it. I was looking at a Volvo 850 Turbo but looking at the immediate previous sentence it'd be a bit ironic. Besides, the one I wanted was very specific and the owner had health issues which...
This is Tomica Premium Nissan Leopard. A close friend brought it over from Japan for 9$.
A quick glance at Fleabay and there appears to be a few people who'll sell you one cheap with free shipping too! :)
There's also the Vintage Neo range which is massively expensive but extremely good...
