Introduce myself

Hi everyone, new to this super forum and I just want to be polite and introduce myself.
My name is Tony and as the username says I'm from The Netherlands.
I own a CLK 200 W208, I bet I'm the only one on the forum with the 2 liter engine.
A real no nonsens engine, not the fastest but very reliable and not too thirsty.
I hope to share the MB spirit and be a contribution now and then.
Regards, Tony.

Welcome to Benzworld Tony!

The CLK200 sounds pretty special. I didn't even know one existed.[:)]

This is a wonderful site with a great W208 forum.

Hope to see you around the forum more often!

RE: Introduce myself

OK then, here's my ride.
CLK 200 Elegance '98 autobox, all the extra's like climatecontrol, cruise/limiter, tractioncontrol, therapeutic seats, parktronic etc. but only with the 2 litres 4 cyl. engine without compressor (139 hp).
At MB they say it's indestructible, but don't challenge me.
Untill 80 mls (130 kms) it's pretty swift, max speed is 130 mls (206 kms) but you need some patience.

Tony.

Thank you all for the welcome guys, and yes I like the way it rides.
It has the base of the C-class so a pretty sharp steering geometry and can make sharp curves.
For me and the mrs. it's the ideal holyday transport with the huge trunk. Only the backseat is a little narrow for two adults with long legs.
But it's a coupe after all!
Regards, Tony.

The dash with the white gauges is that an aftermarket item?
