Hello from Mael0420
I am a new member of BenzWorld. I joined to get a better understanding of my car and talk with fellow Mercedes Benz enthusiasts. I have a 2003 Mercedes C230 Kompressor Coupe, 6-Spd Manual, Silver-grey. The fuel economy is great (30-34 Mpg Highway), with the smooth ride and acceleration making this a fun car to drive.
I have grown up with Mercedes cars (My first was a white 1984 Mercedes 300TD Station-wagon - I loved the car but didn't have the money to maintain it back then), and have an appreciation for the quality that goes with the name.
After I finish some maintenance items, I am looking to tweak a few things on my car, like the stereo and increasing fuel economy. Perhaps I'll add some interior lighting as well. I intend on having this car for quite a few years - I would appreciate any helpful advice that anyone can offer. I am still learning the basics on maintenance - I learned how to replace my brake pads just recently (a huge savings over taking it to the shop).
Suffice it to say I am glad there is a site where people who appreciate Mercedes-Benz vehicles can get together and talk. I am grateful to be a part of it.
