1988 Mercedes-Benz 280Review
Mb 260e 1988 — Love the car because it is very well built and indestructable. after all this time, no rattles etc. I also like that the parts are inexpensive, although I would not say cheap but I believe that it is cheaper to maintain than a Proton Perdana. What I disliked was the original engine as it was way too boring for me, so I threw it out and in went a 1JZ twin turbo from a Toyota Supra. Braking and suspension is first class, so I did not mess with it. Changed rims to 17's that's all.
Pros: great build quality, inexpensive parts and running costs
Cons: not much

Bloody huge, but 7 seats and enough space to move a small army makes it hugely practical, plus it was quite quick considering its size! Nice interior and despite 220,000 on the clock it just didnt wan... Read More
