Mileage is 58K, gently babied for 20K miles I have had her (8 years). This year, I stomped it a couple of times, just to show moma that my car has some grunt. Now my left rear cat rattles on deceleration. Sounds like little marbles. Glad it wasn't the front ones that have the o2 sensors (4 total).
The replacements are on the way here to the house, then down to the indy. Will report on the sound and performance.
I got to say, the wife's 2006 911 is nice to drive (manual), but the merc is a solid car with a great ride, just as good a stereo (she has the bose), same gas mileage, and more low end torque, naturally. I'm actually digging its looks more each year of ownership.
