Smile introduction... my '97 E320 coming any minute!!

hiya, just wanted to introduce myself. i'm a psychologist and writer living in sydney, and am awaiting the arrival of a gorgeous sivler '97 E320 wagon in the next few days.

i've had my eye on this car for years, but let myself be convinced to go practical (again and again and again) and have worked my way through 4, count 'em, 4 honda odysseys before finally deciding to cough up the extra insurance premium $$ to drive i wanted to begin with.

(it didn't help that 2 brand new odysseys in a row were stolen from in front of my house and found stripped to the bone out in the western suburbs. i thought if i bought another one i should just leave the keys in it.)

in a previous life i drove a '91 bmw750, '89 porsche 944, and a '92 911, so the feel of being surrounded by german engineering, ergonomics and style is a fond memory, not to mention the feel of a car that actually responds straightaway when my foot hits the pedal! yum!

so i'm waiting for the insurance payout and will take delivery of the only 7 seat car i can think of that i can drive around in and pretend i'm a rock star or a diplomat instead of a soccer mum with 6 kids.

Welcome to the forum. I owned tens of cars in my life ans only 2 left lasting impressions.
-77 VW Scirocco (one of the first fuel injected engines in the World with 0-100 in 6.7 sec)
-my present 99 E320 wagon. I love the handling and comfort, while 7 seats make it really practical. Using it for my business I like 2 meter long rear cargo space as well.

hey thanks for that. i haven't bought a pre-owned car since i was a kid, but the low mileage and timeless aesthetic sold me.

is there anything i should look out for with this particular year/model? reviews i've read are pretty solid....
