Plus, read the links in the second page. It just doesn't add up. If he doesn't own one, he's a liar. If he does own one, he's a huge hypocrit.
w211 are well within the 25K range. a 03 can be had in 19s if negio correctly.

He believed, and felt that the W211 is a POS and Japanese garbled Chrysler thing (as shown in the previous links), but he obviously doesn't feel that way since he recently bought one.

Threads like this one would be better if there were better data.

I'm working on it, but Mercedes are a weak spot for me. Too few of them signed up to collect data on them yet.

Want better data? Help me get this research off the ground.
