1988 300E - Medicine Hat, Alberta

Greetings All

Purchased my 1988 300E at a Classic Car Auction in May 2007. First Benz and also first "luxury car" ever owned. 125 000 km and in awesome shape. From what I can tell, the only option not installed is the rear window sun shade.

After driving the car for about 2 hours I pretty much made up my mind to never buy a "non well engineered" vehicle ever again. The build quality on the Benz is amazing. Looking for a 300 series or E series 4matic wagon so I can get rid of the truck. Need the space in the vehicle as I travel with 2 dogs and a parrot whilst on road trips.

This forum has been great so far as I have had to get the odometer repaired and the cruise amplifier repaired in the past few months. Without the forum I would have had to take it to a mechanic, but the assistance here has allowed me (a NON-mechanic) to be able to dissamble parts of the car and have the specific item repaired.

Looking forward to a good run with Benzworld. Any members in SE Alberta, SW Saskatchewan or NE Montana it would be good to get in contact and possibly do the odd get together / road trip.
