    Your car should roadworthy and safe every day.

    So, if your car is due a service the day after it is due an MOT...it should pass without the service being performed.

    It's a pre-facelift so it wont be younger, and the model was only introduced in 1996...so probably the original mark.

    Was the 95 w124 pre face lift the one with the large rectangle head lights then later in 95 changed to round lights.?

    The OP has a W210...4 round headlights. The W124 was the model before the 210 and did indeed have rectangular headlights.

    Yes what I was asking is the model before It the 1995 a w124 .
    Thanks not too well up around these years I bought a 1995 s124 e300 d but when looking for parts I am always asked is it the facelift but it has rectangle lights so I assumed mine was pre face lift .. Would be glad of your advice on this .

    You have answered in advance of my question many thanks

    There will be the pre facelift and post facelifiut 124. In other words there would have been a mid term revision, known as the facelift. So, the 1995 124 will be a post facelift one.

    the gizmo on the rear bumper is the filler for the lpg system...

    The 210 came out in 06-96 and it was one of the first cars with the 722.6 box, it ran in it first form till 06-99 when the face lift came out and was finished in 2002 when the 211 came out, so a total span of 6 years, all very nice cars in my view.

    It actually came out in 1995...but hit Britain in early 1996. I had one in March 1996...for a test drive week end. The last 210s, the estates, ended in 2003. The 722.6 box entered the 210 in 1997, so was on the pre-facelift models.

    That is not correct no diesel ever had the 4 speed box, only the 722.6 in 06-06
    and only a few of the petrols had the 4 speed box, MB clearly state the all cars had the 722 box during 06-96 I have never dealt with a post on here with a 210 with any other box

    Who mentioned diesel?

    You said the 722.6 box entered service in the 210 in 1999...it didn't...it was there from 1997. Prior to that the 4 speed auto was fitted to the 210...did I mention diesel...no, and except above you didn't either.
