Greetings from Suriname
My first visit to this forum solved a (big) problem for me.
My name: Jimmy Algoe
I live in South America ( Suriname), 18 months ago i bought a Mercedes Benz E220 Diesel 1997 Elegance.
It was always my dreamcar. 18 months and 40.000 km further i finally understood why people in my country dont buy this brand.
no dealer in my country, no spareparts, only some people who import (special orders.) and you dont want to believe, 10 times higher prices.
i am the 3rd owner and i got the car with 66000 km.
the first 2 owners did not service this car properly, so after buying it i had to do a transmission service (oilreplacement)
i was a greenhorn at this moment about mercedes and service, so i paid about 500 euro for this transmission service.
Today i discovered this site thru google and i already found fantastic information about transmission oils and service.
Thanks a lot guys.
in normal live i have my own IT Company
34 years old
A Happy person.
And Now as a member of this forum a very happy person
