finally returned to MB

In the early '80's I drove a 300CD turbodiesel coupe. Great car, amazing mpg, diesel torque, and tank-like solidity. Well, 0-60 in don't ask, but you can't have everything.

After that car, my daily drivers have been non-MB cars, esp. my trusty Saabs.

Well, the last of these (my formerly trusty 900SE turbo 3-dr) was having too many problems at its advanced mileage to be tolerable any longer, so I decided to return to MB.

Besides, my other German car from Stuttgart (the ass-heavy German slot car called 911) needed some company. Btw, my toys have been focused on sports cars, going from Triumphs to air-cooled Porsches.

I considered many other cars, but in my area (Northern NJ) there are too many good ex-leased MB CPO cars around to be ignored.

Shout out here to Globe Mercedes - My experience with them has been
100% positive. Besides they are Devils supporters, and have a photo of Tony Soprano [James Gandolfini] with some staff members on the wall!

So I found this very nice CPO 2007 C230 Sport with only 10,200 miles. And bought it. Pewter, with a/t & audio 20. Yes, I would have preferred the 6 spd m/t, and this is my first a/t daily driver in over 20 years, but I have to admit it is nice in traffic.

So far, stock it is, although I have the iPod integration kit ready to install. Oh, and I bought a set of snows on rims (from Tire Rack, of course) and manufactured custom 3-point star center caps to fit.
