So I spend about $1841 for owning 2 cars and that is why I feel hard to have one more- 560SEL classic version even I love it so much ... I am always jealous of you guys that can own cars at a much lower cost in US...

P.S.If I am not a car enthusiast, I would not own them and the money saved can be put on a new house...hmhmhm GOOD IDEA
