Both Ksing 44 and Jetformen you are talking about the W124. This is not the analyzed car. The analyzed car is the W210, E320 !!
And , have you ever cruised with an Audi A8 Quattro, or a BMW 5 series or 7 series, all of these cars being on a similar used car price range with the E320, (tangling like a boat when it takes corners) ??
I was on a test at a GM facility in Tarrytown with an E420, Audi A8 Quattro and BMW 540 against Cadillac. The closest to the Cadillac, meaning to a boat was the E420, it could not even come close in road behavior to the A8 or the Bimmer.
But this is besides , head gasket, AC compressor, blower motor and on and on.....
