Clean 96 E320 — I love everything about this car its reliable nice fun to drive handles like its on rails. It spacious and has nice power on the freeway to be a 6 cylinder. It gets good mpgs also I only had to fill up once a week.

You can Afford it

Cons

You are too poor to buy it

The Car Most People Wish They Had — Slow as a dead racoon, but uzzes class and build quality is seccond to none. Acres of space and the ability to haul a full size fridge make it extreamly capable, 7 seats an extra plus, you never know when you need them.

Germany Above All — The performance is great considering its a luxury sedan car. The quality of the interior is great. It doenst cost alot on maintetnace and doesnt require it alot. It is really fun to drive because you can feel the mightiness of the car.

Mercedes W210 — Good chassisW210 staggered AMG 18 " rims low miles- 36K The car runs great, gets excellent gas mileage. I like the design of the W210. Repair and parts for Mercedes is high but less than the M3 I used to own.

Pros

Live life king size in an E-Class !!!

Cons

Way to expensive to maintain such a car !!!

35

If You Have The Money, Get A Merc Coz It Wont Let You Down Ever !! — Not bad for a Mercedes-Benz. The car is quite old but it is fun to drive and thats why i bought it for. The exterior and interior is just ok.. not too much wear and tear. It is more than 10 years old so bearing that in consideration, i would give it a 4/5.

Pros

won't be pulled over at roadblock but able to chase a failady

Cons

Multitronic isn't available at this model

- — nth special but something reliable and nice for highways, Brakes needs to improve(planning to get E55 brakes and AMG body kits. Exterior doesn't fit my age at all but I just like the size of the Int. Gas for highway can be somewhere at around 1.3/km in town can go up to 1.7/km. Since its a Star logo there's no driving fun. Rims should be 225/40/17 (front) 245/45/17(rear). Avangarde springs are good enough for normal drive.

Good Four Door Diesel — Incredible car for running up and down interstate. 100 miles on 3 gallons in a big comfortable sedan that will run for ever. Mine has 235000 miles and runs strong many more years left on it. Holds its value very well
