This car is my first Benz and I have always wanted a convertible Benz. Mine has over 80,000 miles on it now and the feeling I have is that I don't really need a new car. This car has timeless styling, is very practical, gets great gas mileage and performs well. I have heard you can drive these things for 150,000 miles if you want without a lot of problems. This is a real Mercedes and it acts like one - not like a normal car that becomes obsolete at a certain point.
