Mountain House, CA driving a 1999 C230

I purchased a used 1985 Audi 5000S in graduate school 15 years ago and was so impressed with the quality (it's all relative), that I stuck with German automobiles, purchasing a 1999 Mercedes C230 after graduation. The Audi is about 1.2 years away from the 250k mile mark, after which we'll purchase a larger Mercedes sedan for the family and I'll use the C230 for my short commute.

I'm impressed with the quality of information on this site. Typically, I haunt the Audi/VW forums, looking for information on how to repair the latest broken item in my beloved, ancient Audi. Looking for assistance on upgrading my Mercedes stereo today, I realized that a Mercedes forum could be equally as enjoyable and useful.
