I am finishing an oil change in my '86 300E, which I have owned for about a year. Based on driving the car and looking inside the valve cover I would describe the vehicle as simply "in use". Not new or worn out, just in use. Maintenance so far is , not much more expensive than the average vehicle and easy to perform.
Older MBs are known for durability and comfort. How do the new models(mid 80s and newer) fare relative to other cars of the same vintange?.
