Another new guy

Hey whats going on guys hopefully i threw this post in the right spot if not my apologies. new to the site and Mercedes Benz in general. a little bit about myself I'm in the military stationed on the amphibious base in Coronado, CA... anyone in the area feel free to hit me up. I just recently purchased a 2002 c230k just hit 70k had it about a month now, its some kind of reddish orange I'm not sure what the dealer color name is but I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about.

i come from the import world started with a n/a 95 eagle talon, full 3" exhaust..cold air..lowering springs..18" chromies. upgraded from that to a 04 dodge SRT4, mopar BOV..cold air. had alot of fun with that but moved on to a 04 WRX STi, stealth back exhaust..rfl BOV..removal of stock air box ducting in wheel well.. let my buddy drive it and he totaled it.. joined the military spent 18 months in Cuba and now here i am in San Diego California with a merc.

sorry about the long intro but you might as well get to know me if you desire to. if anyone has info on reliable dealerships / techs in the area and good aftermarket shops i would appreciate the info. look forward to exchanging words here and hope to possibly meet up with some outside of the site.

Hi Jeff:
Welcome. I live in Ramona, work in Sorrento Valley & have a sailboat at Harbor Island. I don't care for the San Diego MB dealers & won't go there anymore. Maybe it's me but MB of Escondido acts like they're doing you a favor to service your car or sell you one & Hohen Motors tried to dishonor the extended warranty policy they sold me when the warranty company ran into financial difficulties. I believe both dealerships put their interests well ahead of their customer's.

For normal repairs I use my local shop who is honest & reliable. For serious MB things I go to European Automotive Center in Poway who is somewhat pricy but very good. There is a German car indy place on MiraMar but I've never used them.
