The W124 300CE is the choice for my next car. It's an affordable, reliable choice, and gets good ratings on the road - as a drivers car. Mecedes mechanics are complementary of the M103 engine. The M103 engine was used in the 300CE until 1989 and the 300E until 1992. After 1992 Mercedes reliability ratings drop down. The W124 may not be the Best, but it appears to be the most reliable Benz in your timeframe.

Best all around model? The W124 300E, IMHO.

As far as reliabity? The '94 C220.

As far as style? I'd say the W126 S-Class(Especially the SEC).

As far as city driving? I'd say the W201 190E 2.3.

As far as interior keeping together? I'd say any MB with MB tex. If it is leather, then my vote for the wide cushioned W126 or W140.

As far as body maintanence(rust, pitting paing), I'd say the W140 S-Class. NOTHING beats those cars for paint durability.

As far as gadgetry, the W220(current S-Class).

As far as safety, any S-Class sedan.

As far as I'll go,........Right here.[:)]

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!
What color combination?

It would have to be a G500 or an S430 with an AMG package.

04' G500 (G-Wagen) Benz (sold) <== we trully miss her.
04' Range Rover <== Traded with an Audemars Piguet RG Royal Oak Montoya =)
07' BMW 750Li <== traded this in, economy is down.
--
10' Acura TL w/ Tech package. (I'm loving this new ride)
09' GL320 BlueTec Black on Black w/ Everything except the grille guard.
08' Gallardo Spyder on HRE's
