I love the year, body style and color. That's why I opened this thread. However, I just can't resist ....

130,000. And I have payed for it in maintainence. I wanna say there's nothing else left to do, but never say never on a 10 year old+ MBZ. Each day is an adventure and you never know what it will bring.

The MBZ mechanic is a guy I see more often than I would like. Sometimes I have streaks where I don't see him for anything major for 3 months, and this is heaven.

I love the darn thing. Its a love-hate relationship. I love it's beauty, solid feel, features, sleekness, and great lines. I don't like that window regulators are $$$.

BTW It has a rear electronic sun shade that needs a new regulator BTW, thought I would mention this. I have tinted windows, so it's not a big deal, and I didn't feel like spending a few K on it.

That's about it. Everything works, and it's a treat to drive.

All freeway miles mainly on it.
