Without the electronics they could not sell a single car. It would not pass
existing emission rules amongst others.
I'm afraid you don't have a lot of experience about the new electronics if
you mean money is no object but you still prefer a -92 car over the 2009
If money were no object I'd still prefer an older
diesel. The inability of Mercedes to produce a car
whose electronics are as reliable as the rest of
the car makes the entire point of owning one a
pointless exercise in conspicuous consumption.
Speaking as one with a background in aerospace
engineering I appreciate the role electronics can
play *but* unlike Boeing and Airbus, Mercedes
doesn't build in the kind of reliability that's
required in aircraft.
On the Mercedes the "electronics" use light cable. I can't imagine
what repairs would be after warranty.....on anything.
At least it doesn't rattle, you can't hear the wind, everything fits,
there is no orange peel paint, and it will outrun most everything but
one that Detroit and stay on the road.
The C230 has become a Detroit piece of junk. Lots of plastic and
"leather trim" and thoroughly Wall Street designed.
They'll lose their shirt if they tun into a Ford GM or Chrysler bean
