Hello to all,

I just traded my '05 Cooper S for my sister's '98 E320. I lent the MINI to her and she wouldn't give it back, so I made her write me a check and took the Benz. She is a single mom and needed to off the Benz of to her older brother before it started needing parts more often.

I have a few rust spots, a bad driver door mirror, and other minor issues to sort out. But it is sure a nice car, especially considering it's age. But MB's are like that if not too badly abused.

I've had a few MB's from back in college days in the 70's to now, starting with a 1965 diesel 190. This era of forums has made repair and care of them one heck of a lot easier and so much more fun!

Anyway, that's my story. Good to be here.

Cheers,
Paul

Welcome to the forum.

The model specific pages will help with tech questions.

Thanks, Ross. Funny, "Ross" is my middle name. heh heh

I've already tapped them to drain dimming fluid from a wasted rearview mirror, change the oil, and attempt to figure out how to clean the hopelessly filthy wheels.

I think the wheels are a lost cause though. Hopelessly stained/brakedusted/tarred. Be easier to refinish them than to clean them it seems.

Benzworld is great!
Paul
