Yes, you must of also felt that spending another $3.5K on the 200 must of
been worth it too.

I would also guess that much of the cost is dependent of mileage of the car
and how it's been treated. So finding a good 200 vs. a poor S4/S6 could
still cost you way more in repairs.

Not that you don't already know any of this...

Good luck on you quest for enlightenment.

you will regret it")

Having just spent $3400 on repairs for my wife's '91 200 I can relate to the
repair cost. UFOs alone were $466.
