Hi, I have a 2004 ML270CDi W163 at present. Have owned the car for 3 years now and so far (touch wood) no real issues. We are the 2nd owner, the 1st did 27K miles in 10months and the mileage is 43k now. My History -- I am 38 years old and listing them down has made me realise i'm a bit of a merc nut. My First merc was a 1960 ponton think the model was a 190b, then i had a 1987 190e (lowered with a zender kit(ruined the ride)) at the same time I bought a 1955 220s ponton that a was a real old dog but i loved it. a couple of cars later came a 1991 420sel W126 in bornite which was a real beaty that i should have never sold but i part ex'd that for a tourmaline green 500sl 1995 which i managed to drive off road and through a bush at high speed after getting that repaired and what with my kids getting older i needed more rear space so since the 500sl i have had 2 maserati 4200 coupes. I still have one but with 3 kids the ml gets a lot more use. I am currently looking into getting a W126 sec and if i find a good enough one using that as my everyday car and selling the maserati (but they are lot harder to sell than buy, hence why i have had 2 of them). Anyway thats got that off my chest and its an introduction into my varied car history if anyone even bothers to read this far.
Back to the ML its black with black windows, lux pack,family pack and I like it. The car looks great, the ride could be better but its ok.
Anyhow hello other Mercedes fans .
