Sup,

I picked up a '94 540iA a few months ago. When I was shopping it I was actually lookin at some E39 540i/6's but this one was in excellent condition and had the factory sport pkg which looks sweet. Ive been a long time Benz owner (3 of them) until recently (the new one's suck). Anyway I'll try to make it out to one of your meets.

I've owned two last gen C-Class's and a 300E (which I still have). Between my pops, mom and extended family we've owned enough of them to come to the consensus that anything between '97 and '06 are P.O.S. right up to the S-Class which sucked between '99 & 2003. Buying a Benz between those model years is hit or miss. You might get a good one or you might get a nightmare.

My '91 300E has 300Km (nothing compared to some owners) and IMO no car before or after, by any company had the build quality of the 300E's (or any Benz built between '86 and '96). These cars last forever, they are tanks. It was car's like that which made Benz's so great. Take that craftmanship away and you're left with a decent looking, boring ride that'll last you 250Km +/-. A Camry can fulfil those requirements at a third of the price.

As a company they have lost their footing. Mismanagement being the chief reason. Shremp ran the company during the shitty years and his main goal was to increase profits at the expense of build quality. He was fired this year and replaced by the Head of Chysler group who was responsible for the 300C's, Chargers, X-fires, etc. It looks like they're on their way back to the top.

wait. you think someone who is responsible for the crossfire (please dont ever abbreviate it as an X-fire, i think that infuriates more than just me), the 300C and the new charger should be applauded? Im not saying benz can't make a comeback, but i doubt it will be for that reason

the crossfire isn't much of a car, but 300C's and Chargers are popular rides. in the market place they are a hit.

yup, 300C is wat pretty much wat turned Chrysler around and paved the way for the success of magnum and charger. welcome to max by the way *wave* waitin on pics of the E34!
