I, too, have been very impressed with what great people are here on this forum. I used to have this opinion that Mercedes owners were a bunch of snobbish, status seekers for the most part. The Peachparts forum has totally disabused me of that opinion.

Yeah, but we aren't exactly "typical" Mercedes owners now are we? I mean It's not like most of us own new or even fairly new ones, we all have old ones that most folks would long since have consigned to the scrapheap and we are so cheap we consider paying more than a grand for one to be a rip off. And the idea of going anywhere neart the dealer? well nuff said... OK, that might be a slight exaggeration but I'm pretty sure we don't fit the typical new Mercedes owner demographic.

Which is probably why Mercedes went to some lengths to disassociate itself from this group.
