There's always 100,000 to look forward to. You'll have a number in every window then. Many American cars don't even make it that far.

Its funny. With American cars, you really can break thousands of miles like years of age on a real person.

In that case, MB's life-span is that of biblical proportions.

Not many 300 - 500 year old people out there, but there are plenty of 70 - 80 year olds![:D]

Long live MB. The Methuselah of engineering.

There'll be plenty more opportunities for that pic!

I've just cracked 180,000 miles on my 240D. The car still runs like a dream, and in fact, the more I drive it the better it runs! [:D] Not too bad for my massive CDN $3000 investment 3 years ago!

So I have every confidence your car will easily see such an age. It's not uncommon to see 500,000km on these cars if they're looked after. Just keep changing that oil.
