    I've been lucky enough to have had a few in my time...

    1998 C43 estate
    2004 C32 estate
    2005 C55 estate. Anyone seeing a theme here?
    2007 SLK55
    2016 C63, you guessed it, estate.

    I'm not grown up enough for an E yet :)

    Only 3 so far.

    2004 W211
    2013 W212
    2017 W213

    I *may* be interested in another one, possibly another 211, but need to make some space first...

    Some nice selections there. Glad I'm not the only one with the disease! The old mantra of "wear a dark suit, carry a big stick" has always done it for me. It's taken a selective choice of colour and wheels to keep my latest car under the radar though. The latest crop of AMG's do seem to give more visual drama than the old stuff. They did used to be much more Q car in the old days.

    I agree, it's not the same as it it used to be (like the 210 for example) the c63 is very shouty. S class less so it is still not subtle.

    I have deliberately left mine looking innocent , many around with dark wheels chrome deletes etc etc...MSLs fettling means it’s close on 700bhp but you’d never tell visually

    I also agree with this. They all tend to look too aggressive now with wide "mouths" and fat arches. The 210 was subtle, as were the 202s. I still want a 211 though, love that car. :)

    Followed by ....how did I get away with that.!!

    W210 > Crashed > brake failure
    W211 > Blew gearbox up

    Later ones never appealed that much to me,
    looked a bit ... shouty :)

    Most of my OMG moments were in non MB cars...
    Like doing 80 mph 'ahead at T' in a Capri and driving it home, or the lock to lock to lock moment in Cooper S and gathering it in as I glanced to the left at a long drop away to the valley floor 200 ft below or....or... Still not quite sure how I've managed to survive this long!
