I hate to disagree with you, Doug, but by 1991 BMW wasn’t a “struggling up and comer” anymore. I was in high school then and I remember how everyone would just drool over at the new 7 series that came out in, I believe, 1987.

The amount of restraint required not to hold the horn down while flipping the horn signal-changer up and down to make a melody.

Doug: "Back then there were no all wheel drive luxury cars..."  Audi V8: "Am I a joke to you?"

08:43 Even Dog can miss some German engineering details
There are little dots in between the yellow and white lines in the speedometer at 45mph, 80mph, and 125mph.
Those indicate the max speed at which the gear will shift.
Also if you floor the gas paddle it’ll stop you half way and you kinda have to press harder to click a switch down there to give you more power. What’s up Doug!😎

This is a Mercedes Benz and it has 300,000 miles and everything works like the day it was new, As long as you put the right gas in it and don't miss out on the $200 dollar oil changes.

One more detail I loved about this car.... the wipers on the headlights also have hidden water jets in them. It shoots washer fluid as it wiped down the lights. It's activated only when traveling over 40mph and you hold back the windshield washer stalk for 3 seconds. My dad was very proud of this car. Great video. brings back lots of childhood memories!

The displacement was 5.547 liters, which to be fair to Doug is closer to 5.5 than to 5.6. It did not have 300 hp in the USA, it had 239 hp. Even in Europe you got 279hp unless you got the ECE option code.
The mirror is manual on the driver's side for a simple reason - it used to be that both mirrors were manual in earlier models, and when they added the power mirror to the passenger side for convenience they didn't add it to the driver's side for a long time because...well why do you need it?
The snowchain button is to tell the traction control to allow for more slip.
The ECE version of the engine would in fact get over 160, and in the right conditions could probably touch 170. If you're having to push hard, there is an issue with the throttle linkage, probably a bent throttle linkage rod. This would also explain the performance issue. It should be 0-60 in just about 7 seconds.

Calling this a car of dictators is a cheap shot, what not just say politicians or senior management, which is closer to the truth. People bought them as they were well made and reliable, also understated. Rolls Royce and Bentleys were for the maximalist zero taste crowd, the kind that have more money than sense.

Had one. Perfection. NO COMPLAINTS.Note: a reminder that European horsepower ratings are at the wheels vs. Jap/USA at the flywheel which will be higher because it does not have to change direction or have a load on it. Also, cars are taxed by horsepower so the lower the "horsepower".... Car was faster than it felt and could be tossed on back roads like a sports sedan. I should have kept it!!!!! :-(

The only German Mercedes I would consider to own , The new German cars of today are overpriced money pits which I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole !

There's a light on the lower strip of warning lights, "ASD". It refers to driving in snow and deserves mention. Tell us, please.

My fathers 1989 BMW 735iL had keyless entry, however it was IR based and had to be reset any time the battery died on the car, the battery died on key itself or when the car was serviced (usually the dealer reset the key for you when it was serviced).

@Zachary Weissman Interesting, didn't realize US models had that by MY 1989.

Ike N yes in the US granted you had to lock and unlock, but it had an interesting feature, you could close all the windows and sunroof with the touch of a button.

This model might have been Mercedes' "Flagship" car but there was one even better for those that could afford it, the 500SEC (Gen-I) and 560SEC (Gen-II). they were called the "Banker's Hot Rod" and for those that had even deeper pockets it would have been sent over to the boys at AMG (now owned by Mercedes but not back then) to have literally the whole car modified, engine, suspension, body panels (even wide bodies). I "cut my teeth" on a 91 300SE and now have a 91 560SEC, the best driving, quickest, and most comfortable car I've ever owned.

Doug must not know why the SEL has a sluggish take off, while it has a 4 speed auto it normally starts off in 2nd gear unless you have done 1 of 3 things. Pulled the shifter down to first then back to Drive, have a 1st Gear Start module installed, or floored the gas which would kick into 1st gear for the launch

Doug, really? Vent adjusters being located in the middle are so the driver can reach the right side adjuster. It only makes sense to have all 3 in the middle. It seems that what You call a Qwerk, Mercedes & most of the rest of us call a Feature! If you don't like the buzzer, disconnect it. I can observe 2 Qwerks about Doug. 1) Very negative! 2) Definitely not a "solution oriented" person. I could not even finish the video. To negative, almost bitchy.

Doug when are you going to review the toyota camry 1998?

Silly question considering how unremarkable it is. A 1997 model make sense, but still hardly of relevance.

13.42 Headlight wiper is for wiping snow. To use it, turn on the headlight then activate a windshield washer.

Finest piece of german engineering! Like a German Tiger I Tank in WW2! your "doug score" is a bad joke and you have no clue, you judging a 30 years old car with todays standards? REALLY?😣 this car was ahead of its builder time in 1979! this car was the ultra luxury car, the Flagship in "West Germany" a pure luxury tank! Not a "sports car" i drove an "500 SEC Coupe" from 1986.. it was magic.. also today! A Dislike for a clear misjudgement... amateur judgement, and not neutral...
