RE: Saw an accident today

That E320 they have there looks very familiar. Like the one we saw at the Lexus dealership.

Almost bought it, but someone else got to it before we could.

thats a really nice one. Would that have replaced the ml?, or would it be another merc in the garage.

RE: Saw an accident today

Well, we didn't get the ML yet. I wish we had gotten the E. Screw the 4WD, RWD is okay in snow with the right tires. What really gets me going is the ambient interior lighting. I really like that, and it's pretty nice in the dark. You can read a book if you wanted to. I just don't like the feeling of being in a car at night, and it's pitch black inside.

I fell in love with the lighting after riding in my dad's friends W220 S430, and my uncle's E320.

did your parents buy their ML from here, or somewhere else?

The w211 E class is very nice. I have sat in one, and test driven one, and they are great. I was also chaffeured around in a W211 taxi when i was in Germany. Very good car.

Yeah they have a lot of VWs. Their actual site is bettenimports.com if you didn't catch it.

RE: Saw another accident today

I saw another accident today, unfortunately, i couldnt take any pics. It was a Lexus LX470, and it got hit on the rear fender by a dump truck. It wasnt a major accident, but it probably costed about 2K worth of damage. Back bumper and fender, maybe the rear door as well. Not too big of an accident though.

the lexus LS looks pretty strong. I kinda like it, but i wouldnt buy 1.

"Your gonna tell me what i need to know, it's just a question of how much you want it to hurt"
