Bernie from South Africa

Hi all

I have a C280 1998 model with only 172k km (just over 100k miles) on it and paid for and reliable.

Found this via google and have some questions, seeing I have started doing my own maintenance, used to have a maintenance plan once upon a time when I earned the big bucks, now they are just too expensive and I need the car in the week.

Also drive a 2003 Camry 2.4 GLi and a 1996 2.0i Camry, which is effectively now my son's car.

Sadly the myth of a Merc holding it's value is a load of BS, my Camry 2.4GLi has held its resale value far better than the merc.
