Talking Not-so-new to MB, MB enthusiast most of my life....

Hello, all! I have recently taken ownership of my father's Champagne 1998 E320 4Matic sedan, and I have been driving it since February 2012. I am VERY excited, and the car has been an ABSOLUTE DREAM to drive!

Growing up, our family had a 1981 450 SEL in that beautiful, never-to-be-reproduced Champagne color, and a Fire Engine Red 1970s 300D.

When I lived in L.A., I bought a Anthracite Grey 1991 560 SEC with a Blue interior. It was a terrific car, but heavy on gas, and it did develop the dreaded air conditioning problem so common to that particular model. Before long, the maintenance costs were more than I could afford, and I had to sell it. I thought to myself, that's the first and the last Mercedes-Benz I'll ever own.

Now, of course, I am eternally grateful to my parents, for many things, but also, for selling me their prized MB!

Most recently, my dad bought a Deep Forest Green 2004 S430, with very low miles, at an absolute steal of a price. He adores it, but he says that he still misses the E320! I tell him that it hasn't gone anywhere, that it is still OUR car.

Anyway, thanks to all for having a website like this! I am delighted and honored to be part of the Mercedes-Benz family once again!
