Our new Benz "The Green Hornet"

Hello everyone, our names are Rachael and Matthew. We have just recently purchased our first Mercedes Benz. Our new ride is a 1993 400E 4.2L V8 Automatic fully loaded with 183k miles. A close family member is a 30 yr MB mechanic and was the person who sold us the vehicle. After an oil change, new thermostat, new caps and rotors, and some new brakes he turned it over to us for $1500. It drives like a dream.

As I said this is our first Mercedes and we are officially on board with the MB bandwagon. This car drives better than many brand new cars I've ridden in. We are in Grand Rapids, MI and it handles the rough snow and winter just fine as well. We can't believe how quiet and smooth the ride is. We wanted to say hello and introduce ourselves as well as our "Green Hornet" as it is painted a 2 tone foresty green/ greyish green color.

This looks like a great place to get information and interact with other MB enthusiasts. We look forward to learning a lot from all of you.

Will add a few pictures as soon as it stops snowing/raining and we can get her washed

Nice to meet you,

Rachael and Matt
