the 1.8 l 202 cars are not speedy at all, if you want speed and pull then get a 2.8 or 3.2 litre version of the same car. The old W124 also have their share of "sust taxi" versions with the lazy M102 engine and short diff to make up for the missing torque, and peppy versions like the 280E, 300E and E320. with the M104 engine or the maniac M119 4.2 V8 engined E420 or the Porsche built insane E500, or the AMG built W124 that cost about 150,000 USD when new
As always - get a car that has been maintained. If you want to buy a car that lags behind on maintenance then get it at a price that can accomodate all the replacement parts and labor cost to correct it back to spec. The W124 is pretty oldschool, but its a like it or hate it car. There is no inbetween. If servicing in Pakistan make sure that YOU have a good supply of correct lubes, greases, pastes etc. and also service procedures if the mechanic does not.
