Hello to everyone. This is my first foray into the world of Mercedes. I recently retired without the Company car so after some soul searching and with more than a bit of trepidation, decided to take the plunge and bought a second hand (1996) one owner-FSH W210 E230. I am preparing to go through the car and bring it up to scratch (the pre-purchase check showed it to basically sound and good value) the first items being the sway bar and then maybe if its still thumps over potholes, the ball joints. Now that I have the time I will probably indulge my natural tendency to pull apart too much JUST to make sure its allright. Luckily I do not need a vehicle as I can walk to pretty much everywhere I want to go and if necessary borrow my daughter's car - I live in a separate flat on the property and for my penance have to do baby sitting duties (2 girls, 1 at 6 and 1 at 3) Think its a bit easier second time around as I can send them home - caveat is if they agree.Anyway enough is enough but having seen the wealth of knowledge on these forums it gives me confidence that I made a good choice of car.
