    I think the first was the w123 as you say...but there were some before that...perhaps built to special order.

    I haven't owned a w204 estate, however, have owned a w210, w211, w212 and w202 and w203.
    Plus my old man had a w140 estate that I used to drive a lot.

    I would say the w211 is the best estate, but also have a real soft spot for the w210, just something about it, from the magic carpet ride to the massive size of the thing, a proper estate.

    I would be really interested in trying a brand new S210 and S211 back to back, I think I might just take the 210 for some reason.

    not at all planned but we have ended up with one of each:lol:...i love both of them to bits!!..the only thing that puts a bit of a dampner on the 211 is the SBC but still love it ..the 210 is just plain awsome,,,there is honestly nothing i dont like about it:cool:...well maybe actually the fuel bill,,,but hey ho:lol:



    just thought of something else for the 210....it just dont sound loud enough....it needs a de cat ...and a amg style rear box...the back end of it is just not "Finished" without a half decent system stickin out the back ha ha ...i will have to put that on the wish list for 2013... i know Cole would take great pleasure in making her sound a bit more meaty too! ;-)

    The thing that strikes you on the 123 is the quality of the rear compartment in the side and floor panels, all made with top quality fittings with a very nice tool kit, it was all absent on the 124.

    Funny you should say that, I was saying to a friend the other day that my ideal merc would be a 210, built with 124 metal, with 211 toys.

    Add in 212 driving manners. They are a league ahead of a 211 for ride and handling...
