I bought my Mercedes b/c it offered the style, luxury, and reliability I just could not find with my former truck, Chevy Tahoe.

It's just a great balance

I started out looking for a cheap car, as I'm still a 'student,' albeit a mature student. I soon realized that almost anything worth owning was going to run me at least £2,000. I then realized that I needed a safe car, driving in a country with some different rules than I'm used to, I wanted a fun car, and a comfortable car (My last car was an Audi S4 bi-turbo). Given those factors, it seemed that if I could find a car with prospective collectibility, I could spend more without losing money, and get something safe and fast to boot.

So when I found the C36, I was pretty stoked. It seems to tick all of those boxes, and the strength of the dollar recently made a car that was out of my set budget in May, suddenly very attractive.

I bought my Mercedes-Benz 500SEL because it was my Grandpa's and I wanted something to remember him by after he had passed away. I had admired that car ever since I was little and now I still can't believe but I now own that beautiful vehicle. I bought my Mercedes-Benz also because I know that it is a reliable vehicle and it's quality is unsurpassed.

I purchased my first mercedes, which was also my first car because it looked sweet, i knew it would last forever, and it achieved 27 mpg no matter how i drove it. The car was is a 1985 300TD W123. When i bought it, the car had 284,000 miles on it and ran better than any new car my family has owned. I sold the car to my cousin and he is currently driving a sweet car that runs smooth with 300,000 on the original motor. I can't put into words my respect for benz's, especially the diesels. They are a quality made automobile and a pleasure to own.
