new here,from south florida

hello from south florida.

about 8 years ago,my mother(she lives alone and depends on me for many things) needed a good,reliable,spacious and elegant car that wouldn't be worthless or need replacement in a short time.(think:everlasting as much as possible)it also needed to be relatively inexpensive.(used)

....so,i found and thoroughly checked for her a 1994 E320 wagon.so far,it has "only" 98,000 miles and has been totally reliable,only needing a new battery about 6 months ago.

i do all the maintanence on it and try to stick to only oem parts although,lately i've been thinking of switching to ngk irridium spark plugs.i've been using mobil 1 0w-40 but next time i'm thinking redline 5w-40(even better base stock).

i'm an ex-transmission technition but don't feel like much of a mechanic any more,lol......but i will keep swinging till the end.

i also chose this year model because,imo,they don't make them like that any more.she has enjoyed it very much and i'm so impressed with it,that i'm thinking of getting a coupe for myself of about the same year.(i believe there was a sportier model)

my own current wheels are an aprilia superbike(sl 1000 falco)which i will never sell and i just recently sold a 89 porsche 911(which i kind of regret)and i'm thinking of replacing....maybe a merc?


anyway,hello all.
