RE: What Mercedes-Benz Model IS the Best ?? 90 - 05

I purchased my 1st mb's in 1972. A new 350SL, and a new 300SEL 4.5. Over the years we've had everything from diesels to a new S500. However, I have to say that the one MB that really puts a smile on my face is my 500SEC. If you don't need 4 doors, the large 126 SEC is really as good as it gets. That being said, look for a well kept 1991 560SEC. This was the last year it was made, and most refined version.

I've heard that the W210's had pretty good reliability...but I don't own one, so maybe somebody else might support/object to this.

[|)]
Ivé heard that too! And almost every TAXI car here in Sweden, is a w210! most often a diesel ofcourse.
The big thing who is BAD with the w210:s....is the RUST! they rust and rust...[:(] And i who wan´t to buy a w210 maybe some day...[:I]

350sdl (126 chassis) although I am a little prejudice. actually the best is a 240d late 70's early 80's

real engines don't have spark plugs

No doubt, the twin turbo SL600 (04'+).

At over 100mph, it's better than sex!

Of course! I just brought home my brand new 2005 SL600 today! What a ride! I was considering an E55. That's a nice car too...but I already have a four door STS...so I went with the altimate roadster!

W126 chassis. It's easy to work on, few computers to mess up.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

many of them... overall my favourite (economy, reliability, "performance",...) would be the w124 300D (non-turbo)
