I have the audi for days when I feel like being 'youthful' ...
the mercedes has pure presence and oozes class. I bought it after seeing lots of them on the road still in Hong Kong! 5 days after getting back from there :) a LOT of car for the price!
they did ooze class back in late 80s and early 90s. Not since then! Most people in HK keep them due to road tax and licence fees and legislation, so once they have them, they keep them. Over here, there's no excuse!
A lot of car for £1500-£2k yes, but you'd spend that on petrol, tax, insurance and servicing in 2 years. So most people will steer clear.
You must look like the oddest person getting out of one. 28 going on 60. Thinking that buying a big heavy Mercedes gives you 'presence' and class. FAIL!
