Newbie intro from South Africa

My current car is a 2009 C220 CDI Avantgarde in Pearl Beige and grey leather interior. I am delighted with the car so far and have experienced no problems to date after 3500 kms.
This is my second MB. The first being a W202 1999 C250 Turbodiesel. I did 350000 kms in that one and traded it on the W204.

I am a diesel fan more for convenience as I am a farmer and its so easy to fill her up from the pump on the farm but I must say that the torque of the new car and frugal gas mileage would convince me anyway.

Thanks to you all for the wonderfully informative forum.

BTW. Here in South Africa all new MB's are purchased with a maintenance plan till 120000kms which include all servicing costs up to a certain point then a % on a sliding scale .They also come with a 2 year warranty.
