Best "older" Mercedes for me
I am maybe looking for getting myself into a Benz. I work for a Big 4 accounting firm and it's now time to step up into something a little more comfortable, but nothing that will break the bank.
Estimated budget is going to be $20-22k
What I want:
Power: I own a 2005 GTO right now with headers and cam and I do not want to miss the fun I have when downshift and I slam my right foot down
Comfort: It's going to be a daily driver so I want it to have all the bells a whistles as well as comfort. I have never owned a "luxury car" before so most likely everything that comes on a Benz will be a "bell and whistle" to me.
What year/series Mercedes should I look into? I don't know if I will mod the engine or keep it stock but I definitely want the car to look nice. Will likely get it in black, add black wheels with polished lips and lower the car to eliminate wheel gap.
