New member introduction

Hello to all.

I do not personally own a Mercedes myself (yet), but I have family that do with a wide range of large saloon saloon models (400E, S600, E63 AMG, 500SEL, 190 2.5-16 ...) and i personally love cars and am an admirer of the marque. I am from the UK but have signed upto this website as it seems the most comprehensive and informative site regarding the marque.

We have just finished restoring a 1984 500SEL. Resprayed black, fitted with an AMG body kit purchased from a USA based company, clear front repeaters, AMG 17" alloy wheels and finished with full beige leather interior including the foot rests. I need some advice from fellow members regarding this vehicle (supercharger/blower conversion), but will ask in the appropriate forum.

I personally own the following vehicles;

1997 BMW 328i Coupe (daily driver, looking to change for a Mercedes in the very near future)
2000 Volvo C70 T5 GT
1995 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo (UK spec car, used as a rare treat).
2000 Kawasaki ZX6R J1

I recently did look into an C32/C43 AMG but finding the right car was not easy and the prices seem to fluctuate every 2 months or so at the moment on these due to the economic crisis I guess, so recently acquired the Supra instead.

I'll leave it there as you all must be bored reading by now
