Went to the Adirondaks this weekend and thought I'd post some pics of my 400E... And yes, it does need a wash -- I swear it was sparkling clean before the 260-mile trip [8D]

wow thats a beautiful 400E...I think you should upgrade the headlight to Euro spec...really makes a difference!

How was the car doing a 260Mile trip?

thanks for the compliment [:D] i was driving 85mph for pretty much the whole time and it was completely quiet and stable. honestly, it's better at gobbling up the highway than even my 560SEL is.

i agree with the headlight comment, but this car is not a keeper so i've stopped investing unnecessary money into it. it just got a tune-up and some electrical problems sorted out (see my other recent threads for details) but it still has an occasional idle surge problem and both A-pillars are rusting out. nothing major, and the car should be fine for a while, but my girlfriend and i have started looking for a replacement [:(]

You are right about the car, just do the necessary stuff and cruise it around!

If your getting tired of the 400E and thinking of changing the beast, I definatly recommend you trade it for the 500E [:D] Fire & Silk on the highway...think about it [8D]

Take it easy man, and drive safe
