Starting a Mercedes family

Hi All,

Looking forward to picking up a lot from this site...

I've had a 1988 500SE (W126 body) since 1996, a car I just love, particularly for the "clunk" the doors make when closed. She's called Bessie after Bessie Smith, another big lady with a deep throaty voice.

Alas, Bessie is showing her age, so tomorrow I'm taking possession of a grand-daughter, a 2004 S500 (W220 body). I'm thinking of calling her Dinah; as in Washington, and because my 3-year-old likes singing Dinah won't you blow your horn. Bessie will stay with us, and still will go on the odd trip.

Already benzworld has been useful to me in highlighting things to look for in used W220's - and I'm expecting it to continue.
