New around here, and looking for a Benz.
I was just looking around for a Mercedes community, and this one seems pretty strong.
Here's the spot I'm in: I work for a Mercedes dealership while I'm in school. I'm the shuttle driver, and I do a bit of cashiering/booking/parts stuff on the side when they need me to. Shoot me a PM if you have any (reasonable) questions up that alley.
Obviously it'd be economical, relatively, for me to get an older Mercedes thanks to the generous parts/labor discount. (I can get a good discount on work for all makes, but obviously matching up a Mercedes tech to a Mercedes, rather than a BMW makes more sense.)
Problem is, I really want a car with a stick shift, and a somewhat decent amount of moddability (stuff like suspension, ecu, and typical bolt ons like headers, exhaust, cai, udp, etc.), and I'm not sure if Mercedes has anything up my alley.
I'm in the under $8,000 price range, United States market, and I do like the styling of the 190E, but they're nigh impossible to find with a stick, and I doubt it'd be worth the conversion?
Anyway, this is long-winded enough for a first post, so thanks for the read. Any advice is useful!
