I think driving dynamics is a great reason to own one. Bank vault quiet, smooth as silk, oozes quality, etc. Not everyone wants a hobby car to carve mountains with.

My guess is the same phenomenon we see with late 80’s Mercedes. Dirt cheap to buy but cost of many parts and service are prohibitive. Heater control module on a $3000 MB could run you 2/3 of the cars value sending you underwater very quickly. Just buy one that the seller promises won’t break. All good.
