Talking First Time Owner

Hi all,

I'm from Pottstown, Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia) and I just bought my first Mercedes Benz. I have been wanting a Benz for a long time, and finally I got my first.

It's a 1999 C230 Kompressor.

For as long as I could remember, my grandfather had always owned ONE Benz until earlier this decade. He had a late 70's, I believe it was an E class, but I could be wrong. About the same size as the C230 I have, but it was a diesel. He kept that thing in peak condition for many years, having racked up over 500k miles on it before he sold it and bought a (relatively) new one. It was a late 90's 5 cylinder diesel, but shortly after sold it and bought the C230 which I own today. He passed in October, and my grandmother offered the car to me at a family discount, and that is how it came to be.

I've been reading this site, and gained some useful insight on the care and maintenance of these works of art that they call automobiles, these Mercedes Benz'.
