His and Hers... She's got hers, help!!!!

We just bought a 2003 C240 and now "he" wants a Mercedes. We would like to get a larger car for him, any opinions on what is the best value under 10k? Looking at total ownership cost for two years; purchase and repair minus resale. He is looking at the W126, W140 and W220's. Thanks!

10 grands will buy very nice W210 even with diesel.
Let me think. 25 mpg in 25 years old W126, or 35 mpg in 10years old W210 ????

The w126's will give you between 16-20 mpg but are very reliable. You can get a very nice one for your budget and quite a bit left over....and they are big. You can fit a couple of bodies in the trunk
