Hi there, new member from Leicester, UK
Previous Mercedes Cars: 1998 E230 Elegance, 2005 CLK320 Elegance
Current Cars: E250cdi Sport Bluefficiency & 1991 W126 300SE (for sale)
I have had pretty much every car I wanted up to now including top of the range Saab (9-3 HOT Coupe), Audi (A6), BMW 3 and 5 series - but as soon as I take on another marque, part of me regrets not having a Mercedes. I still have Porsche and Range Rovers to long for (and I really really have something for G-Wagens) - they will have to be on my list.
The regret of selling my most beautiful CLK which was fully loaded still remains. This car was not only such a pretty exterior, but the interior was as impressive as my friends Aston Martin DB9. OK, so I didn't have the brushed steel fancy bits, but even my friend had to admit that the interior was impressive (when someone of his much higher stature says 'wow' under his breath, I realised what a special car it was).
Anyway, I now look forward to receiving my new E250cdi Sport which will be delivered new in about two weeks. Got a great deal from Mercedes as I now know that there is a facelift imminent. The facelift was originally planned for 2014, but it seems to have been brought forward a year. I don't regret ordering the E at the deal I have, but I gotta admit the facelift is a vast improvement.
My black W126 is my pride and joy, which I have brought as a starter project. I only needs a little tlc, but I have to sell unfortunately, so if anyone is interested...
