Perhaps I made a mistake.
I drove an obsessively maintained, beloved low mi 1991 350SDL. It was completely "gone over" every three thousand miles....religously. It was in MINT condition, inside and out.
Surprisingly, at 55mph loafing on the highway, the motor broke down.
Dealer quoted $14,000.00 for a new motor, or $500.00 as is.
I took the $500.00 and walked away.
Impulsively, I replaced it with a pretty Chrysler Sebring convertible. I drove it for four trouble free years, but longed to be back behind the wheel of a Mercedes.
Recently sold the Chrysler and bought a perfect E320 cabriolet.
I've never been happier.
