    Kinda so Blue Chip, it started off in the right section but then the convo turned into political. Now that its political it would end up in the far bottom forum of Politics. Don't worry about it, feel free to voice your opinion if it gets dirty hit the button with the "!" in it that looks like a triangle.

    Very funny jeseda

    Nah, Ormond nice car I wont say anything about your sign in the yard. So you didn't get the STS, you did it to save money and you got a cool car still. Best wishes with it.

    That sign and that car seem like an oximoron to me, a German car with "A stronger America."

    Not meant as an insult to you E500 dude.

    Thumbs up Re: Oops, Look What I Did...

    I bought the MB because it already had some depreciation out of it. It still was more expensive than the STS I was considering. I think that MBs still hold their value better than the Caddies, so buying used made sense for me. I tend to only keep a car a year, so I lose quite a bit at trade time.

    If I wasn't offered the MB at the Caddy dealer, I wouldn't have considered the E-Class. I must confess that I am really enjoying the car. It has an air suspension and the shocks are adjustable. Keyless Go is a good option (like the STS), and the 21 gallon tank affords great driving range. I am a "happy camper."

    basically a joke, as if the 1000hp in the regular 16 isnt enough, i figured a 16-v would really be cool

    i ormond,

    for me as a german a E-class merc. is nothing special, because here the most taxi-cab drivers do drive the E-class. Well they most have the diesel-engines but the car is the same. Another point, here in germany you see many É`s driving allmost every corner.

    Back in the states, you don`t see em often and I think thats your point.

    I´ll get me beside my DTS - XLR and Vette either a CTS V or the new STS.
    Should be at german dealer (export-model) by dec/jan.

    enjoy your E 500

    Harry

    I didnt take the "v" into consideration LOL.

    I guess they would be able to squeeze more HP out of that engine, but with a 1000 hp, who would need more?

    I know, I know, someone will.

    Hehe.

    Two mistakes in one picture indeedy... I would really like to meet the fellow who thought it prudent to trade that beautiful new Merc on an STS... (where the hell is the head scratching smiley when you need it?)

    KIDDING!! Just kidding... you know I couldnt resist. Oh well to each his own, Im glad someone else was able to take advantage!!

    How much did you save vs. a NEW E500 if you dont mind me asking?

    Now... when I see someone trade in a M5 V10 for an STS-V... THAT my friends, will be the day

    Lightbulb Re: Oops, Look What I Did...

    I have put almost 2,000 miles on the E500, and am still enjoying it. My electronic trunk closer quit working, and I am taking it in for service. I especially like the air suspension and the MP3-capability of the stereo.

    As I mentioned at the beginning of the thread, my E was a trade on a new STS. The man who bought the STS also bought a new XLR (he traded an 05 Corvette). I was at the Mercedes dealer a week ago, and both the STS and the XLR were on the used car lot. They were both traded on a SL500! The dealership was asking $5,000 off MSRP, and both have already been sold. And I thought that I was fickle!
