Merc//Ferrari/Porsche. This does not extend to the poor spanner jockey stuck away in some Ford Dealership of course.

I think particularly after electrics start dominating.""Good info being saved is important, forums like this can help when the info is based on knowledge not thoughts."[/quoteOne must understand that what happens in Australia doesn't mean the rest of the world will follow suit. Australia already pays double and triple more for certain cars, such as W116, than the rest of the world does, and that's likely why values won't plummet for Australia....at least for a while. In the U.S. it's already happening. Values have either been stagnant for a long time, or they're falling at an exponential rate on certain models, such as W116. There are few people who can work on them, and far too many people who own a W116 here in the U.S. refuse to spend money on them regardless of how much it costs. It's unfortunate that my input is viewed as insignificant. My commentary is not based on "thought" or "opinion". My commentary is based upon irrefutable facts and knowledge. If I don't know something I will not comment, or I'll research it before I comment. To assume that anyone on this forum isn't knowledgeable is extremely boorish and quite conceited.
