It seems like a hijack/virus. (Not saying it is -- but it's almost as bad as one.)

We have notified admin. Hopefully this will be resolved quickly. Sorry about the inconvenience. Bear with us.

Yeah, this is ridiculous!!!! I even cleared my cookies and it still pops up on Safari, Mozilla and IE.. WTF??

BTW if you really want to throw money away buy a POS Mercedes and you'll get a mechanical nightmare and a company that won't stand behind the product to boot... Don't ask....

WTF???? Where did THAT come from!

One of THE reasons that I frequented this place is that I could get the info that I wanted without much hassle... This changes that dramatically. I had to close the ad, click unread, close the damn ad again to see anything. You'll find me at Anything Sailing Forum until the MB ad goes away...

And DON't get me going on that fine German engineering crap... The best single thing that I've done in the last year was sell my 2000 Audi A6 for $5K. I put that toward a Toyota truck.

I've definitely decided against buying a new Mercedes this year. I'll just keep driving the 90 Honda Civic.

This thread disappoints. I was hoping it would be about this:


I use Opera with a properly configured ad-blocker, so I never see any ads or pop-ups at all.

Minimizes easy for me. On a bright note, I sat in the new E class cabriolet and liked it. Salesman said it couldn't tow a boat though.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

I've heard the W123 wagons are really good tow vehicles. Very low 1st gear, and self-leveling rear suspension.

Breaks Firefox and IE for me. PITA.

Will check back in a few weeks to see if it is better. No time or patience for that kind of stuff.

Just got the popup too.

I'll agree with the MB issue, altho it might be a dealer issue we are having with our ML320 right now............... not in a good mood shall we say!

I drives me dinghy!
