After you have disassembled parts of a 2000 S500, 2000 E55, 98 CLK320 and other of the 1997-2005 AND a bunch of 90-95 560SELs, S500, 500Es, 300Es, SECs and cars of that era you will understand what cheapening occurred.

And some of the parts that I have always watched for quality [like the little window lift switches] continue to be much cheaper in quality/performance than their predecessors. If you can't get a window button correct...
