New Guy

Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself as a new guy on the site. My wife and I purchased a W203 C230 Sedan a few months ago, and I wanted to join the site to learn more about my car and the brand itself.

I won't be able to leave the car alone for long, so hopefully someone has tried to modify one of these before, and if not, then expect a lot of "Oh God, now what have I done" threads. If my other car ('99 Honda Prelude Type S) hasn't been torn apart enough times, this new one will certainly give that one a break.

RE: New Guy

Oh, my Honda is no shame... No ridiculous ass body kit, or big chrome rims, just pure power.

The most recent dyno run was 245WHP, with 198lb/ft of torque... With an 8500RPM redline. No silly neon here.

But the Mercedes is going to be my wife's daily driver, so mostly I am going to tinker with it to make it more amiable to SCCA Solo racing than actual track days.
