Post James says hello!

Okay, so I'm James, I'm 18, and my parents decided that instead of selling their Black '94 C280 w/168,000 miles on it, they are going to give it to me; however, it does need a little bit of repair work done before it is drivable again. It needs a new ECM, windshield wiper motor/assembly, brakes, tires, forced air sensor, and new headlamp bulbs. In total, (not being charged labor, thank God) it will be about $1300 to get it up and running again. Recently, it has been running really rough, due to the ECM being bad, and the forced air sensor went bad, making the car's idle speed fluctuate between 500 and 1300 while in Park.

I'm hoping to get the car out of the shop in a couple weeks. Eeek! I'm only 18 and I will own a Benz! (not that its the best Benz in the world, but I have wanted the car since my parents bought it used 8 years ago.)
