Hi Folks and my best wishes to you all.

I've owned my 320 since 2006 and still love it like the first day I got it .
Test drove the 280 recently and I couldn't tell much difference between the later car and mine so why pay an extra £10000 ?
Looked at a nice 350 which was tempting but it had 50000 and mine only has 27000 .

When the later car came out in 2004 I really didn't think it looked as elegant as mine but the more muscular look has " grown on me " more now. Because it came out I did get mine for a good price with only 7000 on the clock .

Main reason I've joined you guys is to learn more about these great cars.

I'm also a fan of the SL and the 911..
The SLK , SL and 993 911 are the cars I like best .

Used to have a 911 SC but it became expensive to keep in its lovely restored condition. ( Still on Gantspeeds's restoration site ..( Called Kermit )

All for now..

Paul

Welcome from NE England. If you like 'driving ', the R171 is a much better drivers car - steering, handling - no comparison with the R170.

Welcome from Manchester.
I agree the R171 looks more muscular. That is until I saw the new R172 :(
Now I just need about 4 years of patience until I can afford one second hand!
