Cool First Benz but 3rd German machine ...

Hi folks ... bought this '99 E350 'cause it was a one-owner car in great shape and low mileage. I'm going to practice some DIY maintenance and repairs before I upgrade to a newer one later on. Waiting for better economic times [had to shut down my business] to buy another Porsche 911 ... but will enjoy this Benz now and likely will always have one because I think that they are terrific cars. I have hit 110 mph with mine ... just to test it. Great handling and feel on the highway and slightly curving roads. It won't match the go-kart handling of my 911s in sharply curved roads ... but it is still a beautiful German machine.

Just ordered plugs, wires, plug-wire pliers and code reader. My first DYI will be replacing these in the next week or so. I hope to learn from your experiences and will certainly be willing to share my own.
