Greetings from Ireland - New C36 owner

Hi all. Just picked up my C36 2 days ago in Scotland and had a highly enjoyable 350 mile drive home to Ireland. The car didnt miss a beat and impressed me deeply. I'm still digging through the forums for answers to my many questions. My first Benz but I think I've got the bug!

I'll keep my eyes peeled. Did you get the respray work done here? Anyone you can recommend? Mine needs some work too, the ususal rust. You should think about coming on the next Pistonheads run. There was one last Sunday, 60-odd great cars. You can see me nosing in behind a 360 Stradale in this video of us leaving one of the stops:


Mine was the only Benz there so I could do with some backup, I'll send you a PM whe they announce the next one.
