I know that the new S class and 7 series are expensive vehicles, with scads of high tech stuff. And I also know that we all tend to defend our own choice for a personal automobile. Knowing this, I'll take the 126 any day.
While driving one of the newer cars has its appeal, owning one for me, does not. I doubt that i could afford any repairs to these cars, and I also doubt the dealers capability to actually fix one if broken! Lastly, these cars look indistinguishable from Hyundai or Kia these days. Not for me.
