Happy to be here...

Hi Everybody,
I'm new to this forum and new to Mercedes Benz cars. I just bought a 2001 E430 with 104,000 miles on the clock and, as they say at McDonald's, "I'm lovin' it!" It's my first Benz ever and I can't say how thrilled I am to own and drive such a great car! I bought from the second owner who bought with Starmark warranty and had EVERYTHING that ever went wrong with the car fixed. I swear to God it's like a brand new car! Except for the radio and CD player which apparently weren't covered under the warranty!!! I just bought a NOS CD changer on Ebay for $175 so hopefully that issue will be solved. And the radio is next to to be fixed when I see a good one on ebay also.

My last car was a '98 Acura 2.5 TL, which I thought was a good car until I bought the Benz. Now I don't know what I ever saw in the Acura. Compared to the e430, it's a tarted up Honda that doesn't handle for sh** and is a slug, to boot. And got the same gas mileage that I'm getting with the E430!!! How do they do it????
