Mercedes Magazines?

I'm the proud new owner of a new-to-me '94 E320. I was browsing through books-a-million and I see a ton of magazines for BMW, Ford, Chevy, etc., but not necessarily any for MB. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks.

The two mentioned above seem to be it. I have looked everywhere and cannot find any others. Someone tried to start one in the US about four years ago but it never got off the ground.

The mercedes enthusiast magazine looks interesting. I wonder if one of the chain bookstores here in the US would carry it. I would like to see ways people have personalized their vehicles exterior, interior, audio etc. I am surprised the other magazine did not do well as there seems to be a huge following for MB's.

**edit** I did find a magazine called European Car, it's website is www.europeancarweb.com

Barnes and Noble carries "Mercedes Enthusiast" but it is cheaper to subscribe by a bit. "European Car" is not bad but does not focus on Benz, just has an article maybe once every other issue and seldom has vendors that have much Benz stuff.

There is "Mercedes Classic" which is available from Mercedes Benz but I can't remember how to subscribe to it. I think you go to the MB web site [not MBUSA]. It comes out once a quarter.

Benzo, as I recall... What a goofball name.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will go by Barnes and Noble during my break to see what they have.
