Is that an airbag wheel I spot in a 1984 model? If so.. thats a very rare option for those cars back then. Looks awesome! Just do some touch-ups here and there and you'll be set!

Yes, that is an airbag in the wheel. I'm the 3rd owner, and from what I understand about the car it was a custom order from the factory. I was told the car was built to the specs and shiped to the US for just over 71K. As for the color, I LOVE IT. That blue jumps out an says I'M A MERCEDES DAMN IT!!!

We have that problem in my house too. My better half hates to hear that I am spending money on my cars. I just told him last night, I wanted the tray tables for the back seat of the 560sel. and that they were gonna run me 1,600 each. He quickly went into the spill about can't I find anything more productive to spend our money on?lol I suggested buying a new Maybac. I think now he see's the tray tables are a much better comprimise.lol

HMMM. WEll if you were her, I would say ask for the cash on the down stroke. However, sounds like she has you by the kahoonies, so guess you'll be waiting.lol I can't imagine why she would hate that car? The car is beautiful. Being that she has a kid, I would think she would apprecaite the weight and strength of the car as well. I mean they are built like tanks and hold up much better in an accident than say a new Honda Accord. Maybe you need to take home some roses?lol Good luck.

I agree, explain to her how comparatively safe the car is (as you present her a dozen long-stem roses, which by the way may cost about the same as the registration fee). The 280SEL AMG seems to me the safest car in the list of vehicles you note in your signature.

She doesn't have me by that way, she makes the money. If I was working then things would be diffrent. House payments or regestring the car. What's more important? As to why she hates the car? It's a Mercedes... She drives a F.O.R.D. Found On Road Dead, Exploder. haha

How much does it cost to register in Washington? But then I guess insurance costs would have to be considered.
