Hello, I have 3 MBs, two of which I bought in the last 6 months. I have a 1981 380SLC with about 100K on the clock that threw a timing chain about 10 years ago and has been parked in my brother-in-law's field since. Not covered... Anyway, I told myself I would rebuild it but never did. I assume it's now a total loss as I haven't seen it in years.
I was a convertible BMW M3 guy the last 8 years, I had an E-36 and then an E-46. Great cars. Finally traded in the 46 for a 2009 CLK550 Cabriolet. I liked the power, look and comfort. It's a great car and looks amazing with chrome AMG wheels and AMG exhaust. White with Black interior with Dark Ash wood trim.
A couple of weeks ago my wife was ready to trade in the 2009 Cadillac CTS. We looked at new E-350s but when we saw the 2008 CLS55 Platinum Black Edition with the red Nappa leather, my wife (a redhead) fell in love. It only had 25K on the clock and now is in her garage next to her red Harley.
I belonged to the BMW forums and figured MB would have something similar so here I am. I appreciate the collective's experience and joy for automotive performance. Great to be here!
