Cut him some slack; he isn't a native English speaker. If he spoke in the mother tongue, you probably wouldn't have understood any of the video...

That's only reason I don't buy a GT2RS.

I don't want to Goofy Talk.

I had an '88 W126 560SEL. Bullet-proof and one of the greatest vehicles ever built to take on the highway.

I promise that no one will make you speak German, or English with a German accent, if you buy a GT2RS.

Well, maybe.

Fine hit him low, then have someone come up %50 a few weeks later and take it.

The SLC will hurt more on parts...an E320 or 430 are dirt cheap, parts are everywhere and not hard to work on at all
In 10 yrs I replaced
1 battery
1 crank sensor ($30)took me 15 min
AC compressor $800 for a shop to do
Solenoid/conductor plate in trans (they will all go bad) for $600. Every "bad trans" ad you see, thats usually the problem.

Other than that nothing other than basic maintenance. This car will go 250kplus easy...not my thing but if timing is right in the future just may pick one up as a beater/daily they are foolproof. Puta set of tims on, some smoke tint you got a decent looking car for C4 money. Like the 430...least its got a V8 smoothest ever. Rather have a 5 series but they cost bux to fix.
No airbag suspension, brakes are cheap, not much costs a ton. Engine makes 0 noise starting it cold.
BRakes are cheap as a Chevy, shocks/struts too.

If I had the money for a GT2RS I would talk any damn way they wanted me to talk.

At this same time there are other things I want too like a front loader tractor with a 3 point hitch and accessories, build a new oversized 2 car garage with steep roof and tall interior ceilings and I like to put in another bathroom in the house and new carpets, window tinting and repainting through out.

All these things wouldnít have been any problem 6 years ago. Now forced to retire early and no income the wife pays for everything. If she doesnít want it, we donít get it. My life sucks
Sell some of those high-end collector cars that attract a crowd, and then buy whatever you want including a brand new S class car.

Stop being a little bitch too.
