Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 7): Dude, stay away from such a car, even the 24 year old Turkish wannabe pimps have better rides nowadays.
Yes if UTA insists on getting it he must wear the appropriate outfit. Plasticky leather jacket that has never been near an animal, large amounts of fake gold jewellery and a bad taste fake Versace shirt

Quoting Kay (Reply 10): Unfortunately with technology advancing so quickly in the last years, the price of old cars has dropped amazingly, too much for you to enjoy them, when others are actually pimping around in them.
Problem with all those cars is that they can be horrendously expensive to keep. A 20 year old Porsche or Benz requires a lot of care and feeding, much more so than your 20 year old Toyota or Chevy. Which explains why their values have plumeted like rocks. Even if it is a Mercedes, it is still an old car with old car issues.
W126 Benzes seem to hold up well... though I am not a fan of the styling. I think the W124 (E-class) and W201 (190E) were the better looking Benzes of the 80s.
But there is something about old diesel Benzes, they seem to soilder on in all sorts of environments with seemingly less than loving care. And it would probably fit in well in the streets of Tunis.
