Cape Town Guy

Good day everyone! Glad to be here.

I have just purchased my first Mercedes-Benz. a white 1996 280E Elegance. W210. Driving the car 2 weeks now.

I have had Many VW's, and was a keen air-cooled fanatic. (still miss my German Look Bug..) So this is a BIG upgrade.

The car was one of the first to be sold in South Africa, and was imported from Germany. It is mint! 136 000km, 85 000 miles. Leather seats unmarked, Full service history. The owner was meticulous and the engine bay looks like it just left the showroom.

Had a noise coming from the rear suspension, but the service agent found the Bolts on the stabilizer link needed tightening. Problem solved.

I am 6 ft3, my son (16years old) is 6ft1, can you see us in a Beetle? yup, bit cramped. The poor lad looked like a pretzel when we went on a bug cruise. He is very appreciative of all the space available...

Loving my car! it so quiet, the sound system is great, the mute button doesn't work, but that is about it. Have heard very little regarding problems with this model, but is I trawl these pages I am sure to find out more.
