Samurai1833 is back people

After selling the 87 300 SDL that cost me more to maintain than my first divorce. I bought a 2005 Mustang convertible. It was a great toy to have but I needed a new top, paint, tires and carpet after 6 years of abuse.

I found a 2006 E500 that felt as smooth as the old SDL but as fast as the Stang and was in love. It checks out as mechanically superior and I know it is a 10 year car if I follow good maintenance practices. Good to be back! Nothing like MB I think I'll stay.
