RE: $20K budget - what model/year/type should we buy?
Just thought someone should put in a plug for the W140. I just bought one - its my first MB, and even though I am enduring through a few "things not working right" issues - like central locking etc, I am enormously pleased with it. Even my wife likes the look of it.
The W126 looks classic and classy; but the W140 looks, and feels, substantive and impressive.
I figure that if you like big (very big) comfortable cruisy cars, with real presence, then you couldn't do better than a W140. IMHO.
