Just sold the '95 E320, bought a '98...WHAT A DIFFERANCE!!
GOOD LORD!!! The '98 E320 I just bought is only three years newer than my old car, but it feels like it's 15 YEARS newer! It has a completely redesigned engine (V6), 5-speed automatic transmission, all new interior, and of course, the redesigned exterior sheet metal.
Even the electronic key, familiar to many of you "Newer" Benz owners, was new to me.
Not that this is really breaking news, but I guess my point is that if you have never driven one of the '97-up models, you need to. Believe me, you will FIND a way to afford it!
