Bear in mind that the interior appointments books did not show physical samples of the material. For that you'd need a sales brochure/pamphlet from a dealership showing the interior color and material options.

I will never understand this.
I think that you have a point, as you can ultimately become a prisoner to a car like this, where you are afraid to drive it. I saw something like this at a show a few weeks ago where this immaculate, low mileage, 123 was on show. I had taken a photo of it last year, and it had only done 300 miles in 12 months. Rather than hidden in a private garage, this particular 240D should be in the museum in Stuttgart, where thousands of people can appreciate it as a 'new' 123. That's where its value lies.

Its metallic clanking. Thats the best I can describe it. If I turn slow, there's no noise. When turning right - there's some noise but not as bad as this..BTDT. Heavy clunking on left turns, worse at higher speeds, most likely very worn RIGHT CV joint.
Clunk is from binding of the joint.
My 79 300SD had known torn CV boots. After dropping off a 3.06 ratio 210mm differential for a Wavetrac upgrade,
the clunk would get so bad that I had to exit the freeway multiple times.
On the vacant frontage roads I would drive in reverse multiple times to unbind the stuck CV joint(s).
One trick to get more life out of the CV joints is to switch them right for left.
Doing so allows the old joints to run in the opposite direction that is not as worn.
