I don’t agree with Benz Rider's premise, but I find his train of thought to be fascinatingly contradictory.

Benz Rider thought that only the rich could afford and tinker with Mercedes-Benz’. Then he bought one. This appears to indicate that at one time he thought he's rich. But then he posted that he's “not rich by any means”. Hmmmm . . . . . . . maybe the car was an awakening for him.

So Benz Rider, what was the purpose behind buying a Mercedes-Benz? Fiscal research project? Of course, it could be that the purchase was somewhat astigmatic. On the other end of the scale there are those who buy the car to attract girls. Whoops, sorry, that's the same end of the scale.

Come on Benz Rider, end the quandary. tell us why you, who thought “only the RICH could afford and tinker with MB'z”, bought a Mercedes-Benz.
