Congratulations on your "new" purchase. I felt the same way that you do with every used Mercedes that I have ever bought.
We must be the only bunch of owners who get so excited about buying a 10-15-20 year old car. It is a reflection of the kind of cars that Mercedes are.
You don't see a Buick, or a Caddy or an Audi or even a Bimmer owner get so child-like excited with the purchase of an old car (unless it happens to be a really... REALLY old vintage car). As I tell anyone who cares to listen: you take care of these babies and they will last forever.
I rather buy a used Benz than a new anything else.
