oy, i've got a w126 and currently am 19 years old...

it's an awesome car, seriously a tank. show your parents video's of w126's getting into crashes, then videos/pictures of honda's....

the way i convinced my mum to let me drive it was... she basically crashed it and had it repaired and told me "yea, it's safe. it's yours now"

dunno what message they're sending... but i don't consider my old benz a "luxury car" anymore... it's just a very safe car.

the ONLY thing expensive about it is maintainance and repairs...



after a fresh wash.

I live in a rich area and currently drive an Acura Integra and occaisonally a Lexus SC400 and a lot of my friends drive new BMWs and the like. My dad had some initial resentment towards me getting a W126, only because he read an article that said the median age of an S-class owner is around 60 and I'm 17, that was probably compounded by the fact he wanted one for years. After a while, he decided "oh well, I'll let him get the car, but he has to pay for it and its related expenses". I have almost enough saved up to get a decent one. As a matter of fact, I'll be looking at the ones available locally this weekend.

I wasn't invalidating that it's the wrong message. It's to the extent that you'll see kids my age driving and asking to get cars that have 3 times or more the value of a W126. I'm also paying for half the car initially on top of my own gas, maintainence and repairs. I've been saving for ages now.

Yea but why does it even matter what other kids are driving, I was 18 when I got my W140 my Dad drives a Holden (Like a GM or a chevy sedan) and he didn't even care.

Oh BTW the only problem now is that he thinks it's suck a great car, he might try and steal it from me

Can you explain me... Why do you need your father's assent ? Especially if you pay the car, gas, maintenance & repairs ? The only thing which worried mine was that I have a nicer car than him

Well I guess it's the old thing "Under my roof under my rules" Kinda dumb but you know thats what parents are like, their logic works in ways we will never understand.
