The Mercedes-Benz 500E was the original Porsche sedan. Today I'm reviewing a 500E to explain what I mean, and to show you around a classic Mercedes in excellent condition. I'm also driving the 500E to show you what it's like on the road.

Don’t forget! The 500E had slightly different headlight lenses from lesser E classes!

Please! Doug needs millions of more viewers so he can afford pants that come all the way down his legs and a shirt with an actual collar. Oh, the humanity!

in my 1992 300CE24 the Phone is a Siemens, mounted in the right side of the centerconsole in a MB OEM holder. It works and i have a basic subscription in it ... just because... btw. the "Little man" ia anatomically in proportions with children 4-8 years old, it's not a man, it's a kid.

Hmmm - most of the "Quirks" are just W124 standard equipment. My car has the same AC controls, side mirror controls and used to have a phone gear, but in a different place. It's just, mine is a 2 litres four bangers for the Italian market... 120 hp... I wish it was one of this.

If I'm not mistaken Holden and Ford have been putting V8s in mid sized sedans since the 70s for the Australian market

My 1990 560 SEC is much more beautiful than this one

But this is a E500 4 door sedan, a complete other model. Your comparison makes little sense. Anyway, we are all happy that you are not hating your SEC.

There was a version of this car that was INDESTRUCTIBLE, it was W124 E250D. This guy could make up to 2 million kilometers with regular maintenance.

The 500E is amazing, and despite being in the same vehicle class as the e34 M5, I can’t compare the two. I like them both equally for totally different reasons. The 500E is like the perfect highway cruiser with its healthy V8 and automatic, and the M5 is all about fun with the amazing I6 and manual box. Love em bothZ

Stop spreading Porsche bullshit. Porsche had nothing to do with R&D on this car. Their factory was just assembling it.
Rimrock300 Pred 22 urami
What is your sources? Easily available information says Porsche was hired to redesign the motor bay of of the W124 to accommodate for the 500 engine in addition to assemble the E500's

I had 2 E-Classes from the era: Lots of problems and several strandings despite the best maintenance. Can't imagine that a Porsche connection would improve reliability.
Rimrock300 Pred 22 urami
It is known the first years had a some electrical issues, like around 86-87 I've heard. My w124 '95 have never had any eletrical issues whatsoever. Just changing brakes, fluids and such, keep on rolling for 25 more years;) It's a 300 diesel. I've got little experience with the gasoline versions

In '94 they changed to lettered classes.....w124 becoming w210(e class)....the w124 it's not really e-class, u would find that w124's with diesel engines would be 200d, for a mercedes enthusiast i sense a bit to much irony, consider that mercedes has brought in the last 30 years more safety and driving improvements than any other manufacturer. U scored the 500e next to porsche 928 and bentley......price gap @ new???

Stop tell wrong facts! Porsche just helped put this car together! All techologies was Mercedes! Porsche hasn't build anything for this mercedes! They just put it together by hands because mercedes has not experience in that!
Rimrock300 Pred 22 urami
Easily available information says Porsche was hired to help look at what needed to be redesigned in the w124 engine bay in order to fit the 500 engine, as Mercedes was to busy themselves, and then assemble the cars. Is this totally wrong? Did Mercedes do all the development, and just sent loads of parts and drawings over to Porcshe; 'here, assemble these parts' ?

The mono wiper was the coolest thing, it had more power than early VW Golfs or Beetles. This was the last of the mighty Mercs, together with the Baby Benz, as we called the 190E (W201). Anything after them wasn't built to last anymore, wasn't built with this rigid quality understanding. This very thing or the Baby Benz with a Diesel engine can easily reach 1000.000km and does in Africa, in south-east Europe. Many of them are still driving there. This very E-class with the 3 liter engine was the must have for every better off, for every upper posh or wannabe daddy over here in Germany back then. Daddy is a dentist or a lawyer? Daddy had the E-class, but also bigger farmers did. To be honest, I hated the conservative car. I was so German, it was the pinnacle of Germanness, it stank of it miles against the wind and the 'performance model' didn't even have a star for the Punks to rip off. The M 5 had only 313 hp, from '92 on 340 hp but was waaay cooler. The bimmer's alloys alone! God these Mercs are so German, almost disgusting.

Doug You are wrong on the handling...I think even today no 3 volume car can take high speed tight highway corners like this car can...ive seen it with my own eyes flashign by when i was pushing really hard on My ferrari, from monaco to italy, and this 500 e passed me prolly 10 20 miles faster on a really tight corner, that large wheel base and its suspension, are a piece of art. This car shined in its time more than any GT.

It's a cool sedan but it's stupidly overpriced, good luck finding one for a good price.

@Rimrock300 Sounds like you have no budget that's why you have to throw punches at me. I never said I couldn't afford one, I said it's overpriced. Besides, I'm not really interested to tell you the truth. Not really a Mercedes guy.
Rimrock300 Pred 22 urami
The car is correctly priced, they are sold all the time. Just overpriced compared to YOUR budget.
richgall63 Pred 4 dnevi
MB was merely attempting the same thing as they did @20yrs earlier with W109 6.3, shoehorning an oversized V8, only this time they subbed it out via Porsche. They were both equally (very) pricey, though the 6.3 was more exclusive(?), therefore sold more, like 6500. Not sure how many E500’s were ordered...
