its been fun....(pic intensive)

it was time to bail on the E430. good fun times but it was time. most everyone agrees that this is a down grade. meanwhile the Mercedes was costing 2-3000k a year alone in just maintenance. got a brand new car with a warranty....i'm making this my going away thread. i will probably stop checking here so often. although I'll be in O-T a lot. here is a tribute to the sold E, some of my favorite pics and the finally farewell....

early pic....

You'll be suffering MORE than 2-3K a year on a new car.

Plus, the "warranty" is just an opportunity to pay for maintenance in advance ... maintenance you may never need, of course.
