Hello from former Benz owner

Hello! My name is Ren, 13 year US Army veteran, currently stationed in Germany. Although I am not a current Benz owner I have decided that my current car will get replaced by a Benz next year. What I drive today is a SAAB 900 SE Turbo.

Year ago when I was in college I had a '77 300D, I bought that car for $900 and I can say that it was also one of the best cars I've owned. Despite some rust and an a/c that didn't work, the old Benz with 180,000 miles was as reliable as they come, I drove it up and down Florida, across country twice, once to California, once to Seattle. I was an MBCA member back then and used to go to the monthly meetings in my budget Benz, always felt welcome, never snobbed for the cheap Benz.

Well, I will probably be looking to buy a W124 wagon within the next year. I got some questions about them and bringing a 25 year old Euro Benz to the US. But I'll leave those questions for the appropriate forum.


PS: Merry Christmas, God Jul, Feliz Natal, Joyeux Noël, Fröhliche Weihnachten, 메리 크리스마스 or whatever else you say in your language!
