New to the MB world

Well as you can see from my user name I am not the kinda guy you see in a MB everyday! But in my older age, I wanted something with a little more creature comforts, and something I could drive in style (or lack there of depending on your point of view). I started a new position and needed a commuter car, something hopefully will last for 200K, and something that would be fun to drive and was not your typical compact. I chose a 2003 Kompressor 2 dr sedan. I just picked it and haven't driven it yet, still waiting for the plates. It needed some minor work, has 44K on it, and is blue, which around here appears to be a rare color.

I do all my own work, (may need to buy a new code reader) and have found this site very helpful. Thank you to all that post! Come visit me at:
