The International

Saw "The International" this weekend. Nice to see some non American locations for a change. And a bunch of neat Mercedes. At least two MB Taxis. A W210 and a C-Class station wagon. A W140 and a current S-class Diesel. Unmistakable sound as it pulled up. Even my girlfreind remarked about that.

I noticed that too, there was a subtle diesel noise from the S400 CDI?

Thumbs down

You guys sound like you would look down the front of a hot girl's sundress and comment about the patterns of tiles you saw on the floor.

Oh yes. And a brief glimpse of a Unimog in the background of a TV set showing a report from a third world revolution.
