Piston rings are cast iron that doesn't age and good lubrication make them lasting for very long time. Some diesels make couple million miles before overhaul.

No wonder these last so long! I've never taken things down to pistons, so that's good to know.

Still, if you get a car that's as old as mine, you'll spend more money in repair bills than the car is worth, in maybe 2 or 3 years.

Remember, these Mercedes only last forever if you keep replacing broken parts.

Beware of stealers
