Should I have bought this Benz?

A few weeks ago, my friend and I found an E class Benz, it was a 98' E320 with 58,000 miles on it. The private owner listed the price at $13,500.

We went and checked it out, I got a chance to test drive it! It was really smooth...in good condition. The owner was a very nice man as well....letting us test drive it and everything....He was willing to lower the price, at least I think, lol.

I was impressed, I wanted to buy it...however, my dad didn't agree with me

Mistake or Not? What do you think?

Looks aren't necessarily everything...if it's comfortable, and he lowers the price, I'd say go for it... You can't anymore. lol

Its a very nice car, man. I have always liked the E Class. It has just what its name implies...class. And don't worry about your dad disapproving, I went through the same thing when I got my car.

So mixed reactions, thanks for the advice guys honestly, now that I think of it, a BMW fits me a little more given my age. I may go for a Mercedes in the future, but I would prefer a 3 series..or one of the BMW M Models.

Thats a nice one there Zalight

How old are you Inam, you seem very young in your other posts and if not, I think its time to start talking like a grown up

Thanks man, I recomend one for sure. The only problem is, once you get used to how smooth and perfectly balanced BMW's are, you're not going to be able to settle for anything less...

My friend owns one of the 3 series models...a 94' 325i....that car being 11 years old with 170,000+ miles on it handles better than the Benz I drove....on that note, I can imagine what an M3 feels like. Fortunately for us, BMW Motors isn't going anywhere....so we dont have to settle for anything else or anything less.
