Shopping for an R320

I hope to be a MB owner once again, soon. At one time I owned a 1970 250 sedan.

I'm currently shopping for an R320. I need the space of a long wheel base vehicle to accommodate a booster seat, a rear facing baby seat, and a dog or two. The new to us MB will replace my wifes TDI Jetta wagon or my BMW 740il. I may just keep the Jetta to maintain an all diesel fleet as I also have a Dodge truck with a Cummins.

The low slung R-Class makes it a lot easier to get those kids strapped into their seats compared to most AWD SUV's.

I plan to do all maintenance myself. I will be purchasing a service manual and appropriate software for computer diagnostics. I previously worked as a mechanic at a British car specialist shop in Costa Mesa.
