I'm a new Mercedes owner and have to say that even with the older model I have, I'm impressed. I'm coming from a background of owning a Toyota 4runner and a Lexus IS300.... but just purchased a e320 2000 4matic from a friend of mine. He was the original owner and always kept up on service through the Mercedes dealer. He sold it just because he was downsizing the amount of vehicles he had. For the last 12yrs I have always serviced my own vehicles and so far this site has been super helpful in looking at changes. I've already purchased new white clusters along with replacement bulbs to change the entire interior and give it a more custom look.
