Greetings and a sad tale.....

Purchased my first MB last Wed. It's a 98 E-300 turbo diesel with 88k miles. Very clean inside and out and I needed a good commuter vehicle for work.




Then on Sun. night coming home from a friends....



Stupid forest rodents

$7k in damage, thanks goodness for insurance. Wife and I were completely unharmed, I remeber the sound, but not an impact. I am sure that part of that is adrenaline, but we are happy with how the car took the hit. The bummer is that I only had half a tank burned up and I won't know what I am getting for mileage for 2-3 weeks when I get the car back. Looking forward to digging into the site and garnering others knowledge.
