I'd say it's a poodle, and using it as a mode of transportation would be cruelty.

just saying all this obsessive compulsive stuff with the whole idea that everything in your car has to work 100% right at all times, is over-rated. nothing is 100% especially in a used mercedes in which every part has been way over-designed

I had a college roomate who felt the same way. I collect a lot of things and cars are only one of mine, but I have fewer autos than some other things that cost a lot less. Different strokes for different folks as I'm fond of saying.

I am a perfectionist, but my car is far from perfect. little things really bug me about it. The tranny is slow, rear tires do not stick out enough, steering is too hard, there is no mp3 aux, shakes ever so slightly around 60mph, brakes heat up too much and feel different and make a weird noise when you brake when they get hot, etc. etc. etc. So I am accepting that it is just a car, and therefore, does not have to be perfect. I am not going to let it bug me any longer

Or you could simply take the time and make it "just right".
