my new (15yr old) E280.

Hello everyone,my name is Steve and i live in Alloa,central Scotland,i recently bought my 3rd Mercedes its a a 1995 w124e280,the car was purchased through Ebay,i travelled 450miles (a long way in the UK)to buy her,she is Polar white,cloth upholstery,very well optioned,and more important well maintained.The drive home (Southampton to Alloa) was a good test run and served to remind me how good these cars are,set the cruise control at 80mph,smooth as silk and 31mpg,i was well pleased! .She had 93000 miles on the clock and cost me £995,i have had the arches resprayed £250 and i bought a set of MB wheeltrims £35 on Ebay,eventually i want a set of 8hole alloys to complete the look.I cant think of anything that could give me as much pride and pleasure for so little(touch wood) cash!.sorry if i have rambled on a bit ,but i do love my Mercedes.i am going to try to add some pictures but as i am also a newbie with PCs anything could happen.i look forward to your comments, cheers.

Hi there. Your 280 looks great! A well maintained car is always worth it. The hubcaps suit the car, not as much as alloys would of course

I have a W210 280E, had it for about 3 weeks now (my first Merc) Loving it. And like you , I am pleased that I could get so much car, for so little cash!

I wish many happy miles in your 280.
