I love mine. Bought it used 3 months ago with 25k miles.
I researched the car a lot. Mine was manufactured in Sept. '97. I understand that late 96, early 97 models had some transmission problems and might need to be avoided.
I could not be happier with the car. I've heard some say E430 is better, some that E420 is better. I personally have no opinion on that except that the 420 engine is tried and proven.
