Ha. Fintail has so many little issues, it is kind of like Mr. Burns - it has so many ailments that they all balance each other out and the car continues to run (admittedly very well lately)
Most nagging: weird front tire wear, tires themselves are ancient, clock doesn't work, gas gauge is finicky, steering wheel needs refinishing, cold start system is occasionally lumpy when warm, car will eventually need some major valve adjustment or valve job. I can deal with the patina on the cosmetics.
W210 E55 is pretty solid, has an intermittent low speed front end clunk.
