E300 Nice car

Wow, congratulations. My dad really wants a 95 E300 also, or he might hold of for a 98 99 E300 Diesel turbo model.

They are very nice cars. My mechanic/friend actually just picked one up from Texas I believe, its black on camel. I had the pleasure of washing and waxing it.

I would be very curious to know the MPG you get on the freeway, etc. The concern my dad has if he gets one is the power to get up these hills on the way to my house.

Anyway, regarding oil, I would post that separately because you will get 1000 of reply that you can look up in a search. Itís a very debated topic here. My friend runs 20W50 Castrol GTX oil. He lives in AZ, so I would run the same if you are in Texas. If I run Shell Rotella T in my 87 6-cyl diesel the lifters click, if I run Delo from chevron, they donít.

Great car, what color, post some pictures when you get a chance.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
