Hey everyone,
I purchased a 2003 e500 with low miles ( 47k ) about 3 weeks ago . So far everything is fine and I'm happy with my purchase...though I do miss my 06 Pontiac gto that I sold.
If u guys have any input or suggestions on the car, please let me know. I will be reading in this forum about known issues, some nice mods and other stuff regarding the w211. Which actually brings me to my first question...does anyone know what / why the cars got names like "w211". I did try to find some more information on this, but couldnt find anything. I know that w211 stands for e-class 03-09 I think....but what is the reasoning behind this to give them these "codes"?

Well, that was my introduction. I live in Vista ( San Diego North County ) and if anyone knows of any good MB shops, let me know .

w211 just relates to the chassis number given from the factory. Earlier e-classes were deemed 210 and so on.
