The original poster. Duh!!

Correct me if I'm wrong: You are passionate and proud about your S-Class, right? You think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, so you think everyone should get one, right?

Please read "The original poster. Duh!!" And then apoligize! It is at post #1, in case you don't know where to find it. Duh!

Don't believe everything you think

You're getting confused about this again!!

Think about it....You posted to the original poster telling him to get an S-Class instead of a Lexus, right? I was just merely responding to your response.

I bet the thing that's making it confusing is the lack of quotes.

S-Class = best thing since sliced bread, despite it's problems, however not the right car for the original poster's situation. Let's just leave it at that...hahaha.

Come again? What model Chrysler or Dodge? As far I know, only the Chrysler 300/Dodge Magnum, and the Crossfire share the W210 E and R170 SLK chassis.

Has anyone made the move from Benz to Lexus. Any comments or suggestions?
I had a 99 Lexus RX before buying the 99 ML320.
It was TRULY a tin can with some electrical gizmos.

It had less trips to the dealer, but it was a considerably less sophisticated/engineered car than MB.

My 99ML320 weighs over 6,000 lbs but I can get 24MPG on the highway at 215hp and is an ultra low emissions vehicle

The RX was a camry with better trim.

The GS 350 is a Toyota Aristo re-badged....my feeling of Toyota in general is that it they are simple cars with nice interior trim and electric gizmos that fade over time - but they really don't hold up as long as a MB.
