I'm sure I'll be spending plenty of money on the car but this one has been going to the same MB mechanic I plan to use right on schedule. It's 600 miles away from the next one so it won't be long. I came in $1100 under what planned to spend for a 560SEL plus I'd budgeted $1500 for a timing chain job which this car has already had.

If it costs us $3000 a year to maintain a 560SEL, we're getting a far better deal than people driving a typical $20k new car on a 48-month car loan.
