Hey guys! I just registered today, thought I'd tell you all a bit about me.
I just recently moved to Florida and decided that I needed to buy my first car here as I had just turned 16. I've always grown up around BMW's and Mercedes, as my Dad owns an '03 S500. I decided I'd go for getting a C series. So I did.
I bought a 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230 with 80k miles from a guy up in St. Pete for 5000. Love the car to death. It had a few minor problems, window didn't roll down all the way, the interior felt was falling down a bit, brake light was out and the engine was greased up a lot. But I had a new window motor put in, brake light changed out and spent about 4 hours degreasing the engine and he's like new.
I registered here to pick up some tips from you more experienced MB owners. I plan on having this car a good while before I upgrade to a nicer MB, so I want to make it better than when I first got it.
Let me know if there is anything you guys need or anything you want from me. I'd be more than glad to help.
