Woow gordon very well put pics. Sadly Mercedes dont make such cars any more and have become more aero aided and japense.

Forget the Baleno look at the Honda City its looks like a toy infront of the merc.

Yikes, non-leather! Also, those headrest-tvs look out of place...as if they've been glued on.

The W124 is the E Class and the W140 is the S Class. So now decide which is better.

the w 140 and the L7 for me command respect that the new age beemers and mercs would crave for. The newer 's' class and '7' series pack so much more modern technology but then there s always something missing, especially the tank like looks of their older versions.
