As of yesterday, I can raise my hand and say HERE!!!

The Wife and I up here in WA state traded in the 96 C280 for a 92 500E, Slate / Black with 157K pampered highway miles (is that possible?). Currently I think we will keep the 225/55/16 Michelen Pilot Sports with stock wheels for a while.


Does anybody have a solution to the "Perma-Grin" my Wife and I have? It seems to just creep up on you with out you actually knowing your doing it!

There is only one problem I am having, how do you get her out of the Drivers seat?

disregard, the 16V and the SLs in the signature *L*

both cars have factory CD changers and hands-free cell phones. blackberry car has crossdrilled front rotors.

possible future upgrades:
-600SL brakes for the black one (the blueberry one already has the upgraded brakes)
-AMG SL Composite 2-piece rims

oh yeah...British Columbia, Canada
