You have just been appointed as the president of a small European country, and being a budget conscious government, you've been assigned with just €75,000 to choose a official State car.

What do you pick? The only requirements is that it must be a 4-door car, for you, the first lady, chauffeur and bodyguard to ride in.

Is there any other answer?

Btw, redpill me on the W220. I know that the air suspension is a bitch, but other than this? Im looking at the S320 diesel.

W221, sorry. The W220 is a sorry Mercedes from a dreadful era. Know a guy who owned an S350 but he didn't really care about maintainance since he had (probably still has) a safe factory so he is doing pretty well, financially speaking.

I'm more surprised that the Africans actually tried to manufacture something.

best toyota century for that price

armored mercedes 300d

Honda Legend or Opel Rekord

Maybe an S90 actually

If we didn't make any cars domestically then the Buick Regal TourX. Plenty of space, sleek design, and then I can return like half my budget to the government to use toward tax relief for the people. Small gesture, but I'd want to set the tone early of having my priorities straight.

e38 with 73,000 euros worth of simple mods

Kek. Dad owns an S350 and he bitches about how the side mirrors don't always work.

He hasn't had an air suspension issue yet but I'm hearing about it a lot.

If I am being realistic though, probably a Clean 300d, LS 400, or 5th or 7th gen Toyota Crown

Check wether all the settings in the centre screen works. Like go through if the welcome lights work, etc like that. The rotary controller is very delicate feeling to the touch and I always fell it's gonna break when I touch it, so see if it's smoothing rotating. Also check the grab handle of the rear passenger centre armrest. I broke that because its a very light delicate feeling plastic but it was replaced soon. Go through all the seat controls. I remember going through a forum a few years back and reading about the seat control issues.

The car is depreciating like a rock falling from a 10 storey building so think a lot before buying it.

Coming to mechanical issues, I have exclusively only heard about the airmatic suspension issues. I think it's a pretty solid car except for some interior issues I mentioned above.

You can always go through many forums online for W221 on mbworld.org

They are really helpful.

Excuse the shitty English and incorrect words. I'm on mobile and autocorrect is a birch at times.

You don't understand!

Thank you kind sir.
The depreciation only works in my advantage as I wont be re-selling it, or if I were to do it will be for peanuts. But yeah, I see that entry-level, high mileages ones have even gone down to 10.000 euros.
I was initially tempted for an E Class, but the S has been depreciating so much its actually a plausible alternative. Sure, there is no 2.143 cc engine in the S Class (except for the S250 but I wouldn't buy it anyway) so the 3.0L V6 demads more on taxes, insurance and fuel, but yolo.
I only hope that an income of 3k euros/month would cover somewhat the maintainance.

>African luxury

Kek Mugabeposters btfo

I do, but I doubt you'd get a coachbuilt luxury car of which 8 exist in the world for 75000€.

Hey now

African luxury = mosquito proof

I'm not him but that's still a Mercedes S Class. You never know what's waiting for to go wrong and you have to shed a ton of money to just get that part repaired or replaced. Not to mention the huge waiting times for the parts to arrive. I too have heard the SClass of that era to be going good but just give yourself a lot of rethinking before going to get one. Good luck m8.

I am somewhat familiar with the costs of it, from this safe factory friend. A regular service costs around 600 euros (oil+filters+brake pads), a heated windshield costs 1500 euros, air suspension compressor (the part which is 99% the cause of the suspension fail on this W221) costs 450 euros each..

Largets bill I ever saw on an W221 was on the whole steering column which broke down. Total cost was 6800 euros (parts + labor + VAT ). But the whole steering column fail is a pretty big deal.
So yeah, I am somewhat aware of the prices.

And noone likes him

Just get a lexus mate.

Lexus is particularly shit at diesel engines, in Europe atleast. And Lexus didnt catch on very well, in Eastern Europe atleast.

lol looks like they handed a first grader some scissors and told him to cut out the leather

Lexus/Toyota SUVs are very popular amongst rich people in eastern europem just watch some dashcam compilation and you will see many of them in Moscow or Kyiev

He's actually a pretty chill dude

>75000
Is it tax free? Car tax is more than 50% in some countries, you get a base trim smallest engine BMW 5-series or an E-class with that.

A small country not a poor one

tfw you realize the seats are uneven

My people, that is to say squatting tracksuit-wearing slavs, consider me a man of impeccable taste.

...

Are you aware of the fact that seats can be adjusted?

At least it has a leather dash unlike GM.

Can't go wrong. Possibly swap an ancient Benz diesel engine and slap on a big-ass truck turbo as well for ripping mad skidz while rolling some moderate coal

Only possible problem is, dunno if the wife/daki will fit comfortably, may need to get the estate version

xc90 r-design, senpai

>Lexus didnt catch on very well, in Eastern Europe atleast.
Lexus is luxury brand here
peole buy it beucase Lexus/Infinity considered more reliable than modern german luxury cars

And then funnel the money I save into my off-shore bank account for hookers, drugs, and FIFA bribes.

>people being loyal to the brands that produce the most awful unreliable vehicles
Yup, Europe is retarded.

This is mostly because of Lexus not going all out in Europe. They first came with the CT200h which is a poshed up Prius dissapointment, and they came up with the 2.2 D-4D engine from Toyota on their first cars. 2.2 which is quite plagued with issues.
So now Lexus is more of a curiosity for the super rich people, but it never caught the mainstream ability of the big 3

Because Lexus is focusing on build quality and reliability for years to come by. People are obviously rich and dumb enough that they don't save cash.
