I tried using Mercedes website, and the comparision tool, but I can chose only 4 models at one time and I cant copy-paste specifications from there! Moreover soecifications are listed in different tabbed pages which actually makes it more difficult to compare different models of mercedes.

Can anyone help me?!!
See me after class.

Feeling the Pain As Irish Property Values Plummet
By Mary Jordan
Washington Post Foreign Service
Monday, October 6, 2008; Page A09

SUTTON, Ireland -- Denis Finn spent about $4 million on a grand house in this pretty seaside town north of Dublin three years ago, but it was the mansion's grassy grounds where he saw the real money to be made.

Ireland's "Celtic Tiger" economy was roaring, home prices were soaring and banks, it seemed, were lending generously to anyone with blueprints, a hammer and a bit of buildable land.

So Finn borrowed even more and sunk $1.4 million into what seemed like a sure bet: build two ultramodern, four-bedroom homes next to the rambling St. Lawrence Lodge and sell them for $2.4 million each.
...
In countries such as Ireland, the punch has been twice as hard, because the faraway problems combined with homegrown ones that were just as severe. In Ireland, an overheated property market crashed and left banks saddled with massive amounts of bad debt.

This summer, as the Wall Street crisis came to a head, Ireland's did, too. The government announced that the economy was in recession for the first time in 25 years.
...
With credit dried up and house sales plummeting, Finn, a successful developer for more than a decade, could no longer afford to pay his bank loans.
...
"I have never seen property values in my life go down, and they just took a nosedive," said Finn, a father of four. He said if the economy had not turned sour, he would be sitting on multimillion-dollar profits from luxury property sales. Instead, he said, he has millions in debt.
...
European leaders, who initially blamed their economic problems on contagion from the United States and its banks, are increasingly acknowledging that their own banks have been guilty of the same dangerous excesses -- with tens of billions lent for property purchases that have gone sour.
...
Finn hired a workforce of builders streaming into Ireland from Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and other Eastern European nations. He said many of them have returned home. In addition to his 34 employees, Finn's business was connected to about 100 subcontractors and suppliers, all affected by his company going bust.

The developer had loans with several banks, but one, ACCBank, part of a Netherlands-based banking group, called in its loans as the credit crunch took hold. He said he is angry: "They could have let me survive, but they didn't."

"They put a gun to my head," he said, forcing him down when no cash was coming in.

Aware that many people fault developers for recklessly overbuilding, Finn said he largely blames the banks for the current crisis: "It's human nature. If people are handing out money easily, people take it," he said.
