help a girl on her next MB
My first MB was a 79 300D. Loved that animal... took me to CA and back in 2002, fully loaded w/ my boat and bikes on the roof! Little things and the need to upgrade took me to an 89 260E that, while I still loved, I found that, apparently that year the valve seats were not that great and they were known for those problems. As my mechanic said, "this was not the same kind of animal". Unfortunately, (or fortunately) I was in an accident and totaled my car, coming out from the bottom of a pick up truck totally unharmed. It is time for me to get another baby MB but I am willing to do the research it takes so I can get another animal.
I need advice on a good year and model for my next MB!
Any recommendations or definite exclusions?
Please keep in mind the following: I am a grad student with certain budget limitations, so according to $$ I am looking to get probably 1994 at the newest! I would ask my mechanic, but he also sells used MBs and that might persuade his choices.
