indy Benz newbie
Just signed up here today . Bought my 97 e420 2 weeks ago replacing my lexus ls400 . One of my employees needed a car after wrecking his audi so I gave him my lexus when I came across this car . The Benz is a nice upgrade . I wanted to go with somthing not extreamly pricey but still nice being my first mercedes and after having less than admirable experience with my BMW .
The 420 has 163k and is really in excellent shape . seats are just starting to show alittle wear but not bad . runs and rides perfect . All the lights and other electrical work flawlessly , body is in good shape but im still having it repainted to fix some small flaws and ad an extreme dimensions lip kit . looking at projection headlights , H&R springs and 18" wheels .
I figure for just a few thousand more dollars I can make a great looking , great running and riding daily driver that so far gets about 25 mpg .
Of course I still question every aftermarket decision I think ive made , hundred times over thus changing my mind daily .
Great forum , glad to have found it .
I own a dragbike building / motorcycle repair and a cylinder head porting shop in Indianapolis and my head mechanic was a mercedes/bmw mechanic for seven years so we'll be doing all of my work (except paint) in house . Eventually Ill get bored and mod the engine....
