WOW. Almost 10 years later and 57 pages in. I haven't been on here in a while (life, right?) and this thread almost made me get emotional! So many great cars and wonderful, committed owners.

The E320 wagon and E420 are still my parents' daily drivers, 100k+ miles later on each.

The E320 wagon got me through college safely and with a lot of fun and practicality (has anyone else turned off the ESP and done a sideways slide with all 4 wheels spinning?? Or ridden in the 3rd row of your own full car with a friend driving and Tom Waits playing at max vol?? Or tied black garbage bags to the roof full of your crap?? Or fit a full sized adult trike in the back??) So many great memories.

The tailgate on the wagon rusted out in a lot of places and has been replaced with one that has a hilariously dark tinted window. Rust taking hold under all door seals too. My dad has snow tires on the '02 rims and summer tires on some earlier W210 rims (both look great but dammit the summer tires should be on the newer rims, drives me crazy!). The wagon moved me in and out of college 3 years in a row, and moved me to NYC. It's got the cold-transmission-stall issue which was a problem for me up north in college, but is fine farther south for my parents so we've largely ignored it. All the bells and whistles still work except for about half the pixels in the cluster display and the volume knob on the stock radio. 14 years old and still kicking ass though! Gonna drive it til it implodes, no remaining trade value really...

The E420 has seen an added heated drivers seat for my mom (aftermarket kit so we could keep the pneumatic seats), xenons swapped out for regular lights and some minor rust on the fenders has been fixed and resprayed. Somebody in a parking lot backed into the driver's door a while back, so that was fixed and resprayed too. Easily the lowest $ per mile car we have ever owned. She will drive this car for the rest of her life, she loves it so much. No one even thinks it's 18 years old.

And here I am, not checking the W210 forum, with a 560SEC, 560SL and ML500. Still have incredibly fond memories of the old Es and think the best car I've ever owned was the '96 E320 with the silky smooth old-school inline six!

Drive on W210 folks, and can't wait for another 57 pages of pictures!!

I'm new here! Figured I'd post a pic of my 210. It's a 2001 E430 Sport. Bought it from the original owner that kept it in an a/c garage. Completely flawless original paint. I'm not too much of an aftermarket parts and what not, I'm simple and the Sport package is good enough for me! Dropped it a little bit on H&R spring pads and put a set of staggered 18's and that's about it!

No salt on the roads during the winter in Suomi????

My '96 had holes in the front fenders 12 years ago when I killed Bambi with it.

Yes there is much salt on the roads even when there is no need for it.. I've had to change the front fenders and do some welding to the skirts etc but its in pretty good condition now.

Any color as long as it's white

Our 2001 E320 4matic wagon, named "Weecle" after my baby talk for "vehicle". It's a daily driver and something of a rolling restoration.

I recall loving the W210 body style at first sight when it came out, and I still like it better than what came before or after.

Our new W210 Wagon

We added a new Benz to the familiy. In addition to our 84 300SD Turbo Diesel, we now have a 00 E320 AWD wagon, and we LOVE it!

My 1996 E320 with the M104, just over 100k. Found a set of E55 monoblocks and got the interior back to mint condition.
