Finally I'm a Mercedes-Benz owner.

Hi My name is Noel and I just bought a 1996 S600. I'm 31 yrs old and I have owned a few cars in my life, most of them being euorpean. I do alot of mechanic work myself, and am very picky about my own work. I follow the shopmanuals closely all the way to the correct nM's. I started working on cars when I was 18 with my 1990 Saab 900S, and it went on from there. I own a 1984 Porsche 928 from 99 - 05 and had no choice to become a great mechanic (with a gun to my head) or have a expensive driveway piece. The car was previously owned by a guy who neglected the important maintenance.

I have always wanted a Mercedes since 19 years old when I saw a w126 in ferrari red with a koenig body kit, or when I saw a schauffer driven S600 V12 in downtown Minneapolis. I hope to learn from all of you and how you maintained your Mercedes-Benz.

Cars I've owned:
1986 Mazda 323 4dr (totaled and sold)
1990 Saab 900S 4dr (sold)
1985 BMW 528E (sold w/ 214,000 mi)
1984 Porsche 928S (sold to keep my sanity)
1991 BMW 535i (sold, great car)
1986 Chrysler Laser T-top (track car)
1989 Saab 900T Conv. (sold, why did go back to saab again?)
1996 Mercedes S600 V12
