Angry Damn 'ol Cheap Plastic Parts $#%%!@

Why in the hell did MB have to cheap out on the interior when they built the 210?! I love the looks, the ride, the engine and the size. It has several improvements over the 124 that I had previously. But the friggin' cheap ass plastic parts inside are killin' me!! I had to replace the light bulb in the rear center light and the moment I touched the plastic housing to get to the bulb, it cracked like Michael Huang. I call up the local MB store and they want $51 for a $5 part! On top of that, my rear view mirror shakes like a scared pup and that wonderfully engineered cup holder won't lock down and is now in a perpetual up position.

Sorry for the rant but how can you put an MSRP of $40,000 on something with that much cheap plastic.
