Hello Benzworld members!
Thank you all.
A special Thank You to the R129 contributors.
It was a winding road to R129 worship.
I never thought I'd own one.
I was looking for a $5000 car for my soon to be 16 year old son.
He's cutting his teeth on my wife's E320.
I spent several futile weeks...
Looking at used cars before my wife agreed he should keep driving the E320. IMO, and now my wife's, there is not a safer 1st car for him.
#1 Son is more than pleased.
Note...My wife did NOT want to give up the E320.
It has 123,000 miles and going strong.
If the E320 survives #1 son...my 12 year old gets his shot at it.
Soon we figure out sharing the E320 won't work.
My wife is not sure what/when she wants to buy.
She's been promised another convertible.
I started looking for used MB rags.
Something to drive short - intermediate term.
What is up with R129 pricing????
The Roadster for what???
2 weeks I'm buried in BenzWorld trying to figure this out.
Yes. I bought a new 2000 E320 and never visited to BenzWorld.org
Monday, with my wife's blessing, we took delivery of an R129
Have I told you I hate black cars?
I'm test piloting...
A 98 Black/Tan 500SL.
Have I told you I don't like black cars?
I ordered a new black soft top yesterday.
The original top is worse than I thought.
It has the hard top.
Have I told you I don't like black convertible tops.
It has the Sport Pkg with 18" AMG wheels.
I have a ton of records.
A clean CarFax.
I'm owner #3
Last guy had it for over a decade.
He bought it as a 3 year old.
This Roadster is an absolut BLAST.
We will keep it...My wife says black is ok.
My wife is getting used to it as a short timer vs the E320
I have got to drive a 600SL...
If I find a 98 Pano I will still try a 600SL...
Smooth as that 500 is....I must know.
After my wife is driving her new car.
Have I told you...
I'm grin'n silly, talking funy, spendn muny...
I'm liking black!
