This episode of 5th Gear was why I bought the 124 230TE over a 126 300SEL, please note that Vicki Butler-Henderson repeatedly says sorry to the poor old test subject.

I hate watching this senseless episode... :mad:

There is no need for this, except to boost ratings :eek:

This W124 owner upset to see such injustice!!!

Not a fan of the W124 Tony?

Infact I am a fan of the 124/201 and these clips ive utilised often to demonstrate to Non believers the benefits of the 3 Point star.

2 Saab and numerous formerly smug Volvo owners all converted to Mercedes because of these 2 clips and the 80's Australian commercial featuring the family and their smashed W126 so the exact opposite.

These 2 sensationalist clips are a great way to get people to watch and absorb without seeming preachy (Can I get a Hallelujah?)

Even the Canon ball hit to the rear door had me curious to get a better look and ofcourse the structure seems unharmed with doors working with the reassuring thunk.

Id like to have seen the same on a 200 or 700 series Volvo wagon both of which i've owned, I can say confidently that neither would have survived the monster truck as well.

Oh and Vicky B-H is a Milf which helps.

Hi Tony,

Good to hear you are a fan of the W124 and W201 both fine examples of a Mercedes.

Good point about the 200 and 700 Series Volvo's!

Brings a tear to the eye to see the cruel way the 300TE was treated in the video!!

Yet it the video just shows you what a damn good car the W124 is.

All the best Tony.

Cheers Tim.
