mercedes w124 260E
tell me why are you an benz fan ? (pictures included)
Thatâ€™s a good point â€“ many of us donâ€™t realize how weak and shoddy other car are compared to a classic MB (I donâ€™t know the newer cars so this may no longer be true). When you start driving an MB you drive it faster, longer, harder because thatâ€™s how they are designed. A lesser car would not hold up to the â€˜abuse,â€™ I know Iâ€™m just as hard on my cars. Itâ€™s really a testament to how well theyâ€™re built.redwood - 4/6/2005 3:14 PM

The oldest Merc I own is a 89' 300E. I drive
the crap out of this thing, full throttle maxed out speed, hard on the brakes from triple digit speeds, extreme load 4 passengers 100 degrees outside A/C on going 90mph up hill and over mountain passes. This M103 engine is truly bulletproof. After 216K miles it idles smoothly gets 20 mpg. still feels very rigid and tight and will still pull close to 140 mph. anytime I want. My V8 400E is the same way only faster.
