Ok, so don't kill me. I'm a BMW guy - I own an 2007 E92 (coupe) 335i and a 1994 325is that I use for autocross.
BUT I grew up with Benzes - my parents were MB people - 1975 280S, 1978 450SEL, 1981 240D, 1982 300SD, 1983 300D, 1986 300E, 1994 E320. I remember first falling in love with the cars when we went to pick up the 280S (silver with red MB-Tex) back in 1975 and thinking how cool the car was. I remember being amazed at how bulletproof the diesel motors were.
Just thought I'd join because I'm starting to entertain the idea of a W126 and thought this place would be good for research. I've always loved those cars and it represents what I remembered about MB - the overengineering, the tank-like solidity, the reliability, etc.
