Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W210)

Motor vehicle

The Mercedes-Benz W210 was the internal designation for a range of executive cars manufactured by Mercedes-Benz and marketed under the E-Class model name in both sedan/saloon (1995-2002) and station wagon/estate (1995-2003) configurations. W210 development started in 1988, three years after the W124's introduction.

The W210 was designed by Steve Mattin under design chief Bruno Sacco between 1988 and 1991 later being previewed on the 1993 Coupé Concept shown at the Geneva Auto Show in March 1993. The W210 was the first Mercedes-Benz production car featuring Xenon headlamps (including dynamic headlamp range control, only low beam).[7]

Design patent and facelift[edit]

Design patents for both the Coupé Concept and the W210 E-Class were filed on 25 February 1993 in Germany and 25 August 1993 in the US.[8][9][10][11][12][13] On 21 July 1998, design patents were filed on an updated W210 (designed in 1997).[14][15][16]

For model year 2000, a multi-function information system was incorporated into the instrument cluster below the speedometer, and the introduction of steering wheel controls for the audio/navigation/phone system. In addition, the 5-speed automatic transmission introduced +/- gate positions for semi-manual control of the gearbox, marketed as "Touch Shift." This electronic system replaced the previous gated shift arrangement. Exterior changes included a revised front with a steeper rake, similar to the CLK, and restyled bumpers and lower body trim. Sedans received new taillights, and the wagon's tailgate was revised, moving the CHMSL from the base of the rear window to directly above it. The final W210 production included the E 320 and E 430 special editions released in two exterior colors - quartz silver (limited edition), obsidian black, and with Xenon lights, 17-inch alloy wheels and black maple walnut trim. Estate cars (sedans optionally) had Citroën-like self-leveling rear suspension with suspension struts rather than shock absorbers, gas-filled suspension spheres to provide damping and an under bonnet pressurizing pump. Unlike the traditional Citroën application Mercedes opted for a fixed ride height and employed rear coil springs to maintain the static ride height when parked.

This was the first time a V6 engine was offered (model year 1998) to replace the straight-six configuration (1995–1997). This new Mercedes-Benz M112 engine produced 165 kW (224 PS; 221 hp) and 315 N⋅m (232 lb⋅ft) of torque and offered a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) of 6.9 seconds. Other offerings were the E 420 (1997), E 430 (1998–2002), and E 55 AMG (1999–2002) with 260 kW (354 PS; 349 hp)[17] and a 5.4 L normally aspirated engine. In North America, the range also features two diesels, including both non-turbocharged (1996–1997) and turbocharged (1998–1999) 3.0 litre straight-six units. In 1999, Mercedes-Benz discontinued diesel powerplants in the E-class in North America. In Europe, the diesel engines were superseded by more advanced Common Rail (CDI) units (2000–2002). The CDI engines were not offered in North America until the E 320 CDI in the newer W211 model.

Transmissions[edit]

The early four and six-cylinder W210 E-Class carried over the 4-speed 722.4 automatic from the previous W124 generation E-Class. In 1996, Mercedes installed in the E-class its electronically controlled model "722.6" five-speed automatic transmission, a gearbox introduced in 1991 that was also available as an upgrade option in some of the six-cylinder W124 models.[18]

A five-speed manual is also available, although after the facelift in 1999, it was replaced by a six-speed manual. The 5-speed transmission was marketed as "sealed for life"; however, Mercedes dealers now recommend changing the fluid at regular intervals.

Wheels[edit]

The W210 chassis originally came with one of the following OEM wheel setups:

  • E 200/E 220 CDI/E 230/E 240 (pre-facelift)/E 300 diesel: 15 x 6.5" ET37
  • E 200 Kompressor/E 240/E 280/E 320/E 420: 16 x 7.5" ET41
  • E 430: 16 x 7.5" ET41 (before 2000); 17 x 7.5" ET41 (after 2000)
  • Sport Package: 17 x 8" ET37
  • Special Edition: 17 x 8" ET35
  • E 55 AMG: 18 x 8" ET31 front, 18 x 9" ET35 rear.

ET is the German abbreviation for Einpresstiefe or offset, where the number is in mm and indicates the amount of offset. This ETxx is stamped on the inside of OEM rims for easy reference.

The bolt pattern is 5x112 (12 mm x 1.5 lugs), with an offset range of 30–40 mm, a wheel size range of 16"x6.0" to 20"x8.5". This is the same bolt pattern as most Mercedes, including the previous E-Class (W124). The newer Mercedes, including the 2003 (W211) to the present E-Class (W213), have 14 mm ball seats, making the wheels interchangeable only with the use of aftermarket lugs that combine a 14 mm ball seat (also known as "R14", the "R" meaning radius) with a 12 mm thread.

AMG versions[edit]

There were four engines that AMG installed in the W210. The first was the E 36, M104.995, launched in 1996 for select markets then the M119.980 in the E 50 AMG produced from early 1996 until late 1997. This model was assembled in Affalterbach under the one man one engine philosophy, only available in left hand drive European markets although many were exported to Japan from new. It is estimated around 2,800 E 50's were ever produced in its limited production run. There was also an option for the M119.980 V8 that was bored out to 6.0L and increased power to 381 PS (280 kW; 376 hp) the cars these were fitted to were designated as the E 60 and came in sedan and wagon varieties. A limited edition 6.3L version, also badged E 60 AMG were built in 1996 generating 405 PS (298 kW; 399 hp) and 454 ft⋅lbf (616 N⋅m) of torque. In 1998 came the M113 powered E 55 which used a 5.4L V8 SOHC 24V to produce 354 PS (260 kW; 349 hp) and 391 ft⋅lbf (530 N⋅m) of torque.

The body styling on all of the W210 AMG models was the same until 2000 when a facelift and interior upgrades were implemented. The W210 E 55 was the last vehicle for which a major portion of production took place at AMG in Affalterbach. Production was actually split between Affalterbach and the Bremen Mercedes-Benz facility until the end of 2001.

E 36 AMG[edit]

The rarest of the W210 AMG models due to low productions numbers is the European-spec E 36. Based on the E 280, it was only produced in 1996 and 1997 and was not available in the US market. In Australia, they cost upwards of AUD $185,000 (new) and there were only 49 units sold. While rare, they are nowhere near as powerful as the V8-engined AMG cars.

Production Figures: <400 (production models).

The E 36 looks identical to the E 55 (pre-facelift).[citation needed]

E 50 AMG[edit]

The European-spec E 50 was only produced in 1996–1997. The E 50 was not available on the US market. This model is becoming very desirable for collectors due to its rarity.

GUARD versions[edit]

The W210 was the first E-Class available with factory armoring, these cars were known as GUARD versions and were available with 2 different levels of armored protection, B4 or B6.

The E 320 and E 430 were offered with B4 armoring and the E 430 and E 420 with B6.[19]

Features of Guard include:

- ISOCLIMA bullet proof glass.

- no sunroof

- driver's glass with partial opening, all other windows are fixed

- Full reinforced structure and suspension to hold extra weight

- SLS (self leveling rear suspension)

- Microphone with external speaker (optional)

- Users manual includes a Special Protected Vehicles B4/B6 booklet

- Datacard codes for GUARD lists 979 - Safety Version added with Z04 - B4 Reinforcement on Special Protection Version or Z06 - B6 Reinforcement on Special Protection Version

4MATIC all-wheel drive option[edit]

In 1997, Mercedes-Benz reintroduced the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system in the US on the W210, although it was previously available in some European territories. Although this 4Matic system shares its name with the 90's 4MATIC system of the W124 300E, the system was totally redesigned and simplified. Rather than using the clutches and couplings of the earlier design, Mercedes opted to use three open differentials: front, center, and rear. The front suspension design of the 4MATIC-equipped models is different from the rear wheel drive models and makes some replacement parts (such as shock absorbers) more expensive.

The E 55 AMG was available on request with 4MATIC option, based on the driveline of the E 430.[20][21][22]

Reliability concerns[edit]

Some known problems include the front spring perch being corroded and tearing away from the inner fender (wing), causing the front suspension to collapse. (4Matic models are not believed to be affected.) Other problems include defective harmonic balancer pulleys (recall), rust on trunk lid near latch, rust on Mercedes emblem on front hood, rust on door frames under window seals (recall), rust on front wings just above bumper, defective mass airflow meter, melted rear light bulb sockets, defective blower motor regulators, and rear window regulator failures.

Harmonic Balancer - Some M112 and M113 engines used in W210 models were equipped with a harmonic balancer pulley which, due to a supplier quality problem, may fail and cause engine damage. If the rubber insert of the harmonic balancer pulley delaminates, the pulley may grind through the timing chain cover and oil pan, causing several thousand dollars of damage. Mercedes-Benz USA issued Service Campaign #2005-020003[23] which included inspection of the part and replacement if necessary at no cost. The part number on the harmonic balancer pulley can be compared to those given to Mercedes-Benz dealers in the Service Campaign notice[24] to determine if the part is a faulty original or has been replaced with the updated part. Replacement of the faulty part with the updated part should be a permanent solution to this problem.

Blower Motor Regulator - If this part fails, the climate control fan will not operate faster than approximately 50% power. Mercedes updated the regulator to improve its reliability, but the redesigned regulator requires the installation of a new blower motor. The old-style regulator, which is compatible with the existing blower motor, is no longer manufactured. The blower motor regulator may be replaced with the much less expensive W140 S-class blower regulator, provided that the E-class wiring harness is re-attached to the S-class regulator.[25]

Front Sway Bar Drop Links - While not a serious concern, most E-classes end up with a sub 35 mph (56 km/h) clicking or rattling sound from the front end. This is usually due to worn out front-end sway-bar drop links. These can easily be replaced by anybody with minor knowledge of vehicle DIY, for no more than around £20.[26]

Front Spring Perches - Some owners have reported rust problems on the front spring perches - the top perches, which hold the tops of the springs for the front suspension. The perches are spot welded to the chassis, and factory coated in a weatherproof mastic to stop their rusting, however in some rare occurrences, water gets behind the mastic causing the perches to rust and eventually to fail - leading to collapse of the suspension. The car remains controllable. This is a problem that Mercedes USA have acknowledged. The problem is not identifiable without first removing the mastic to check.

Body corrosion - Most model year versions of the W210 displayed body rust, notably on European-sold cars. Rust would sometimes appear spontaneously on panels such as doors and roofs on cars less than a year old. In response to this problem, the manufacturer would in some cases change or repair the affected panels under warranty or good will.[27] Mercedes-Benz has been criticized in the European press for not officially acknowledging this problem. This was due to problems introducing water-based paint technology within the German automobile industry, between the years 1998–2002.

Window regulators - The power window regulator, essentially the mechanism that transfers power from the electric motor to the window, has a few plastic parts that can fail after several years causing the power window to stop operating.[28]

Cylinder Head Gasket - The cylinder head gasket on the M104 is known to fail, causing an oil leak at the rear of the cylinder head.[29]

Differential Bushing - The rear IRS differential bushing wears rapidly during high performance driving and cornering.[citation needed]

Diesel injection distributor pump - The OM604 engines (E 200D and E 220D) were equipped with an electronically controlled injection pump from Lucas. The seals of the Lucas injection pumps become brittle over time and leak. The electromechanics have also been known to fail. Since the replacement of the entire injection pump is very expensive, a repair kit is offered in which the affected seals are replaced. Failed Lucas pumps are also commonly replaced with Bosch pumps from W124.

Model lineage[edit]

The W210 models replaced the W124 E-Class models after 1995, launching in mainland Europe in September 1995 and in the United States on 8 November 1995. W210 sedans were replaced by the W211 E-Class after 2002, and wagons/estates changed body style to the W211 after 2003.[citation needed]

After 10 years of success, Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its new series of E-Class sedans. In previous years, however, caution would have been taken regarding any dramatic restyling of the venerable sedan. But the new E320 doesn't adhere to this caution, although it continues as a benchmark to which other luxury car makers measure success.

The three E-Series vehicles, E300, E320 and E420 are virtually identical on the outside, but vastly different under the skin, each using its own, distinct powertrain. We spent a pleasant week behind the wheel of the mid-level E320.

OUTSIDE - While previous E-series vehicles were purposely styled without much flair, the new version adds a bit of passion to Mercedes' prior rational styling commitment. The familiar hood ornament and signature chrome grill have been retained, but the overall package is quite different. The redesign has smoothed its shape to achieve a low, 0.29 coefficient of drag, with flush, oval headlamps sweeping into a highly contoured hood. A new suspension system has allowed the company to lower the nose of the vehicle, which further enhances its aerodynamic shape. Also new this year are longer front and rear crumple zones and a unique subframe assembly designed to break away and slip beneath the vehicle during a severe frontal impact.

INSIDE - The new E320 has been stretched and widened, which adds more interior room than before. The interior features new controls, all placed in logical fashion with clear, analog gauges and simple buttons for ventilation. E320 is equipped with such standard luxury features as burled walnut trim and leather upholstery, 10-way power front seats with memory features, dual climate controls, electric tilt and telescoping steering column and auto-dimming rearview mirror. Power windows, mirrors and door locks are standard, along with a remote locking system and an interesting ventilation system which automatically switches to the recirculate mode when sensors detect outside pollution levels have risen. A new, more powerful stereo system is also standard.

ON THE ROAD - While the exterior has changed, the E320 continues to use the same 3.2 liter inline six cylinder engine that has powered it for years. With dual overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder, it develops a healthy 217 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque, but it feels like much more. By using an advanced fuel delivery system with variable length intake runners to optimize the engine's torque potential at different engine speeds, the power delivery is smooth and strong, surprisingly so since it has to push a car loaded with luxury and safety features. Noise reduction is a primary goal at Mercedes, and that goal has been reached as the only noises we heard were the faint sound of the twin-cam engine, and a bit of tire noise. The sole transmission offered, a four-speed automatic, shifts firmly under wide open throttle, but more mundane driving habits give almost imperceptible gear changes.

BEHIND THE WHEEL - Switching from the previous E-Series front strut suspension to a new double control arm setup, and teaming it with a new rack-and-pinion steering system has made the ride feel more smooth and vibration-free, with neither too much or too little steering boost. The new suspension has also allowed Mercedes engineers to soften its shock absorbers and stiffen the springs, giving it better defense against bumps, while maintaining its quiet ride and predictable handling. The independent multi-link rear suspension of the previous model remains, while larger diameter four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock control are standard equipment. The ride is typically Mercedes, as the car soaks bumps with ease, with violently uneven roads feeling more like perfectly flat pavement.

SAFETY - In addition to class-leading crash strength, electronic traction control and anti-lock brakes are standard, as are four airbags, two in the instrument panel, and two more in each front door panel. An upgraded driver-controlled traction control system is optional.

OPTIONS - Our test car featured a power glass sunroof at $1070, and special exterior paint for $685.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class - Roadtest

A Precisely Calculated Step On The Wild Side

The large oval headlamps are reminiscent of a prairie dog's gaze when frozen in the beam of a 747's landing lights. Their attention-getting boldness comes not so much from the shape-cars like the Dodge Neon and Toyota Celica already have doe-eye oval headlights-but from the fact that they adorn the volume sedan of such a steadfastly conservative automaker as Mercedes-Benz. There's no mistaking the new E-Class for any other luxury car on the road, and that's just what its designers had in mind.

The most intriguing question has been what lies behind the wide-open orbs. If eyes are truly the window to the soul, then these ovoid peepers offer a glimpse into Mercedes' rejuvenated spirit. You see, the new E-Class is a product of turbulent times. Intense competition within the luxury arena combined with unfavorable monetary exchange rates has put Mercedes in a double bind and has forced the company to reassess itself. "Change can be uncomfortable," says Mercedes-Benz North America President Michael Basserman, "but if you're going to stay on top, you're going to have to get used to being uncomfortable." And this philosophy goes far beyond just conceding to cupholders.

Over its 11-year existence, the previous E-Class has been the U.S. 's all-time best-selling import luxury car. Yet the era of the decade-long platform is over. This new generation is expected to run a seven-year lifespan. Moreover, production costs also have gone under the surgeon's knife. In fact, in a company that's been traditionally driven by engineering-"build the best vehicle possible and let the price fall where it may"-the new E-Class, amazingly enough, is the first Mercedes built to a specific cost target-a way of life at most other automakers. The result is a healthy 20-percent reduction in production costs over the previous model. To Mercedes' credit, these cutbacks are hard to detect in the new car.

The current '96 E-Class lineup for the U.S. consists of the E320, with a 3.2-liter DOHC 24-valve inline-six engine, and the E300 Diesel, powered by the 50-state-legal 3.0-liter 24-valve diesel inline-six. The E420, motivated by a 4.2-liter DOHC 32-valve V-8, will make its debut this spring as a '97 model. A wagon version of the 320 is expected in the fall of 1997. Meanwhile, the current E320 Cabriolet is scheduled to remain in production through the end of 1995, and no replacement is expected. For this test, we obtained a production E320 and a pilot version of the E420.

The E-Class' distinctive front end is an attempt to forge a new, fresher image, one that will stand out from the conservative luxury crowd while attracting more female and younger buyers. It was a styling stretch that met controversy within Mercedes ranks, but it's one that in our estimation works. Beyond the front end, the body shapes quickly metamorphosize into traditional Mercedes cues. A gently raked rear window lends the sedan a sportier roofline. In the rear, oval fog/backup lights on the trunklid attempt to carry over the front's theme, though it seems less inspired here, as if designed more by committee than passion.

The E-Class' wheelbase has grown by 1.3 inches, and the body has been stretched by 1.6 inches in length and 2.3 inches in width. This translates into a significantly roomier cabin, especially in the rear seat area, where passengers enjoy an added 1.7 and 1.4 inches of knee and shoulder room, respectively.

Inside, luxury appointments abound. New interior amenities include a power tilt/telescopic steering column, three-position memory system (for front seats and headrests, side mirrors, and steering-wheel height), an integrated, sunvisor-mounted garage-door opener, dual front and rear cupholders, and a "smart" dual-zone automatic climate control. An especially nifty feature of the last item is an outside sensor that detects carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen; the system automatically switches to recirculation mode (signaled by the word "smog" appearing in the digital display) to prevent the gas and odor from entering the cabin. We found that the system is sensitive enough that merely pulling up behind a car at a stoplight will activate the recirculation mode.

In addition to dual front airbags, the E-Class is the first production car to include in-door side airbags (Volvo's side bags are housed in the seats), which are nicely integrated behind leather trim panels. These are accompanied by new seatbelt force limiters, which reduce the belt's pulling force during an impact to minimize the chance of chest injuries and allow the occupant to contact the airbag sooner. In addition to improved front and rear crumple zones, the engine subframe detaches in a severe frontal impact, allowing the drivetrain to slide under the passenger compartment.

The E-Class' driving characteristics have been further refined as well. A double-wishbone front suspension replaces the previous strut-type, while the rear multilink design has received some fine-tuning. Although firmer springs are used, their longer travel in combination with softer shocks provide a more compliant ride without sacrificing any road-hugging stability or crisp cornering performance.

To shave both weight and cost, the familiar recirculating-ball steering system has been replaced with variable-assist rack and pinion. This conveys a slightly lighter feel, with only a hint of the previous system's on-center vagueness, along with good, linear turn-in and accurate response.

Both the E320 and E420 powerplants are essentially carryover, though they segue nicely into the new generation. The 320's muscular 3.2-liter inline-six boasts 217 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque, yet it's the engine's ability to come on strong down low and maintain a smooth, linear delivery all the way through 6400 rpm that is most impressive. The inline-six is complemented by a responsive four-speed automatic transmission that comes through with well-timed shifts and instant kickdowns. On the test track, the E320 muscled its way to a respectable 0-60-mph time of 7.9 seconds-well ahead of the Lexus GS 300's 9.4, and about on par with the V-8-powered Lincoln Continental's 7.7 and BMW 740iL's 7.9.

The 420's 4.2-liter V-8 pumps out an ample 275 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque and is coupled with a new five-speed automatic transmission. It delivers abundant power on demand-effortless passing and scampering up mountain grades are no-brainers-and the five-speed keeps the engine in the meat of its powerband. On the track, our test car ran the 0-60 dash in 7.5 seconds, on par with a Lexus LS 400 (7.4) and Jaguar XJ6 (7.6). However, since the rear axle gearing in our pilot vehicle was a little taller than the production ratio, this time could drop slightly in production trim.

Standard on the E320 is Mercedes' Electronic Traction Control (ETC) system with brake-applied compensation. The more sophisticated Acceleration Slip Control (ASR 5) system (with brake and engine compensation) is standard on the E420 and optional on the E320. Mercedes' advanced Electronic Stability Program (ESP) "anti-spin" control system is optional only on the E420. Meanwhile, the former 15-inch wheels have been upgraded with 16-inchers on both models, while more-aggressive 215/55HR16 tires are used in place of the previous 195/65HR15 rubber.

In instrumented handling tests, the lighter-weight 320's 63.9-mph slalom speed and 0.83g skidpad held the edge over the 420's 61.1-mph and 0.81g results; both sets of numbers are about average for their classes. Both models employ four-wheel disc brakes with standard ABS, which pulled them down from 60 mph in 127 feet, again average for class.

Overall, the new generation has been honed to a, well, "E." It's strong, taut, and as solid as the Federal Reserve, yet friendlier than its predecessor, a tad softer in the right places, and with a few new tricks up its sleeves. As for the spiffy new lamps, they're like Bob Dole learning to play a sax; a hip twist on an otherwise serious, no-nonsense personality. The icing on the cake is an aggressive pricing plan that has the E320 holding the line of the '95 model at $43,500. Considering the added standard equipment of the '96, Mercedes claims the price actually represents a 5.7-percent decrease. The E420 is even more attractive with a $49,900 pricetag, $2,600 less than the '95's sticker and an eye-opening 9.7-percent decrease on a feature-for-feature basis. This makes the E-Class offerings not only impressively engineered automobiles, but downright bargains, as well. Cost-effective, stylishly innovative, and consumer aware: What is Mercedes coming to? Whatever it is, we give an enthusiastic thumbs up.

1996 MERCEDES BENZ E320 - View our current inventory at FortMyersWA.com

I was flogged for every non-dexterity and fault. Now I have a bob hairstyle, I do not wear underwear under my outerwear, since my Mistress believes that I should be open and accessible, for her. And her friends and girlfriends, for the same reason I shave my crotch. I can stand it when they fuck me with starpons.

If they ask me who I am, then lifting my head up, I answer that I am a slave, a whore, a whore.
