Hi everyone, looks like a great site with good people and lots of quality info. I'm hoping to tap into some of that right now with my first post...
In the last few months have picked up a 94 E320 wagon, and a 95 E320 Cabriolet. Got rid of the family Dodge Durango.
I like the old mopars, and have a 49 Dodge street rod and a 70 Cuda that I am restoring.
I am looking for a 3rd family vehicle, one my 16 year old daughter can learn to drive, but will also be my driver sometimes.
I have been looking for a clean early 90s 300E or CE for us but NICE ones are very hard to find around here, at least for a reasonable price.
Now I am starting to look at maybe a BMW, like the 525 late 80s, early 90s.
My question is this, especially for those of you that are familiar with both, but I welcome any and all input:
1. Should I stick to MB since that is what I now have and am getting familiar with? What are all the pros/cons of the 300 Mercedes vs. the 525?
(I have been told the best years for the 300E models are 90-91, and 94-95.)
2. If I were to consider a BMW, WHICH YEARS specifically of the 525 are the best?
(I have been told the best years for these are 93 and newer.)
I welcome any and all advice.
