Hello to all from new member

Hi all,

Just bought a 1999 E300 turbo diesel, dealer maintained and rustproofed from day one. 165,000 kilometers. Car is now in my laneway in Kitchener, ON.(Canada), will start driving it next week. Fabulous condition, as far as I can tell so far, everything works (some functions still to be discovered). Price hurt badly, I guess you get what you pay for C$13,800.

I am an aircraft mechanic and plan on using the car for commuting to work (roundtrip is 198kms or 120 miles of 95% highway).

In the next few weeks I plan on doing all the regular service items (filters, change all oils, bleed out breaks etc). Then, if the car doesn't cause me trouble, I will be looking into performane items (EGR delete, airfilter, delete muffler and partical/soot converter whatever its called).

I have surfed here plenty before buying car, awesome site, great discussions and advise. Keep up the good work all.
