donald- your observations are true, which is why
while others walk their dogs, i drive my cars around
daily. these mb cars are built to be driven long and hard.
at european highways, the average cruising speed is
200 kms. plus.
here, we hardly push our cars over 160 kms. firstly,
because it is illegal, secondly, we do not have the infrastructure to safely handle those speeds, and finally, we tend to baby
our mb cars, conserve the mileage for higher resale value
in the future. nothing wrong with proper care, but i think
our cars need a regular workout, moreso being driven daily.
just my opinion.
