Respected by my peers (MB Lineage)

A neat thing happened to me a few minutes ago as I was cruising down the main drag here.

gonna get a little wordy here...

I'm driving down the street, two lanes, and a Maroon CLK pulls out and hops up behind me. He's kind of close, so I think he's some young punk being obnoxious. I'm holding my ground and then he swings out slowly and comes up along side. Just then, ahead in oncoming traffic I see a REALLY REALLY nice W115 come down, and he dims his lights to city lights as he drives past, and gives a wave. Cool I thought. then the CLK guy nods respectfully then takes off. Nice to get respect from other MB drivers

Not like all those ML soccermoms that think they are the masters of the school zone

I've gotten a total of about 7 comments during ownership of 3 different Merc's. Most people don't care. People do get out of the way when I'm approaching them on the left.
