Having recently just aquired my 1st mercedes a 94 e320 wagon, all i have heard from my friends,fellow workers,w/acception of 2 fellow benz owners, is putdowns/jokes/why did i buy that pos/i wouldnt touch that car or work on it for anything....Just because they all own nothing but amer cars, they have to put down foreign cars, german cars the most.My nephew rode in my car and soon changed his toon, kept looking at the milage 226000 and couldnt believe how smooth it is on the highway...Whats wrong w/people. Yes i do own a 08 gt mustang, but if im going on a long ride the benz is the car im driving...

Ignorance is bliss. Let em keep thinking the way they do anyhow; it makes for better used availability at better prices.

Reminds me of my stop in the local parts store a few weeks ago. When the parts guy asked what make, model & year I had, he immediately started belittling my choice saying "Why would anyone buy a Mercedes or BMW, they're just taxis!" to his coworker. I, of course, wanted to ask him about all the 300SL taxis he must have seen but decided the best way to handle the situation was simply to pay for my items and leave behind the wheel of my wonderful Benz, in complete happiness and contentment.
