    Ok, maybe I should have not used the word "disgusting", but personally I have found that 1000 SEC a bit "chavy" . As a big fan of the original W126 (which IMHO is Bruno Sacco's best legacy), I deeply dislike any deviation from the original design.
    Maybe the name 1000 SEC got on my nerves more than anything else... hence my emotional comment. It's very arrogant...not MB at all.

    It's a slice of 80's retro, quite a thing back in it's day.

    I see what you mean...but I would have been more than happy with a standard "boring" 560 SEC. Long live the 80s anyway:)
