I noticed that there were a lot of cars imported from non-Communist countries. How common were they in Poland during the Comminist era? Who was in a position to buy them?

Mainly: members of government, directors of state enterprises, scientists, artists, owners of small private firms (small shops, farms etc.). It was possible to buy some western cars in Poland for dollars (in Pewex shops), others were from private import. So of course, because of price and availability the most common were eastern cars, but I remember from my early childhood (80's) some "special" streets in Warsaw where were parked mainly "non communist" cars.

It was similar in Czechoslovakia (I wrote about it in the discussion about movie "Vesnicko ma strediskova". There were mainly eastren cars because of their availability and price. Only some western cars, mainly Fiat and Renault were available in czech crowns, the rest was available only in the shops called Tuzex for dollars and other western money. Owners of this cars were also the "prominent persons", scientists, artists and also grenngrocers, butchers and winegrowers. I remember that our neighbour, who was a cellist bought a new Peugeot 309 in 1987 and the director of our school owned a Renault 9 in the 80s. It were sometimes very interestig stories. For example a friend of my grandma bought Ford Taunus 17M in 1971 from his neighbour, who inherited the car from his aunt in West Germany.

Yes, but background cars... worth to note.

Ok, as much, as I could now, I've checked the 125p's once again. The 13:59 125p is for sure not MR 73 it has old handles. At the youtube copy their shadows are visible. It is not taxi - the logo reminds the one of "Stomil" - some sort of company car. :D
I didn't notice any more MR73 alike cars. It really wouldn't be possible in 1972. Maybe some had "black" grills due to shadows or this common rubber covers (or simple rags placed on the grill), but I haven't seen even such cars.

Edit: Ok, I added some of the mentioned background vehicles, rest was too blurry or duplicates.
