Not fer 'nuthin, folks, but I humbly submit that prices have come down, way down on these things. Indexed for time (assuming $$ roughly halves in value every 7-8 years based on cost-of-living), my '92 500E would cost around $160k...a LOT more than an $85k E55.

I frankly think the newer cars are giving quite a bit of value to their drivers. And they're undeniably even safer in many cases, and invariably outfitted with more conveniences than their forebears.

Lastly, indeed the new S-class is awesome, but even the regional MBZ tech guru told me he's been befuddled by some of the new things going wrong...and they're even harder to diagnose.
