Talking Proud owner of 1997 E320

Wife and I were looking for safe car and on a budget - I had a BMW 2002 20 years ago - it was a "rolling education".. Also maintained/kept running mine, friends and now our family vehicles since - found this was amongst the safest.

So being apt with tools and the occasional duct tape/zip ties to get CV's through a recent ski trip - decided if we want safe its either Volvo or Mercedes. To offset the cost, Ich werde Mercedes sprechen lernen.

Last night brought home 1997 E320, Black w/tan interior, 184k on the clock and the machine has been babied and burped since birth at the nearby dealer. Started the contingency plans (research here) for maintenance, part procurement and such - knowing its high mileage will be getting fluids/plugs etc done very very soon, else its smooth as silk on the road, and clean.
