Post New C280 Owner

Hello all, I've been browsing over the forums for a couple of weeks now and I just purchased a 99 C280 W202. Its the cleanest 10yr old I've seen in my life in and out, including the bay. Amazingly it has 165k on the odo. I picked her up from a Chrysler dealership before it even made it to the lot. I was told the original owner (one org. owner) had barely finished the paperwork before I called dibbs, and talked numbers. Chrysler even threw in a 3yr. warranty on the clear coat. Im not sure what the original name is for the paint, but the best way I can describe it is, a pearlescent champaign. It has tan interior thats fully functional.

Another thing I love about this car is the innovative engineering put into the M112 V6. I know the aluminum block and silicone sleeves have alot to do with the reason the car runs like it does today, IMMACULATE! I've had it since last friday and not a single problem yet. Thanks, Mercedes for your engineering effort and the free roadside assistance

Also I would like to thank for the knowledge I gained of this car and its definately been a factor in my decision on buying this auto!

P.S. Im working on getting a camera with hi-res so I can take some desent shots.
Thanks for reading!
