New to Merc

Hi All,

I have been into muscle cars all my life so this is new to me. I wanted something more "refined" to show up for work and evening events (Not to mention the fact that my wife is tired of having her teeth rattled loose...) .

I purchased a 2000 c230k with 90,000 miles for 3200.00 USD. Being that the car has no marks on it at all, I think I got a really good deal (I even went under the seats looking for stains and had the dealer put it on the rack so I could check the under side of the car) .

What type of longevity can I expect out of these kompressor engines? I was a little hesistant to buy a daily driver vehicle with a blower on it. I felt good that the engine bay was extremely clean (I mean spooky clean. I've worked in many engine bays over the years and I checked all of the places you would normally find dirt even if they pressure washed it constantly and it was C-L-E-A-N!)

The only problem I have found is that the factory radio is missing the knob cover. Does anyone know who makes these radios for Merc? This one has a knob on the left side of the screen and a telephone type keypad on the right.

Thanks for taking the time to help out us newbies .

Eric
