Newbie Here

I'm a proud new owner of a 1992 Mercedes 300ce sportline. It's red with taupe interior and has approx. 210k miles. Everything works great except for the A/C. I'm excited. It's my first Mercedes. The inside looks great. The outside could use a serious detail.

I know. Can't wait to have it detailed. However, fixing the A/C is priority.

So, I've been hard at work fixing things, upgrading things, etc. So, so far since my last post: had the A/C fixed, installed new brakes, found an amazing deal on 17" Lorinser wheels, and had the car extensively detailed. It's like a whole new car. I wasn't so sure if the red would come back, but, look at her. Looks amazing. Well, to me at least. So, here are updated pictures. I still need to replace the grill and I'm thinking of a light blue tint.

If anyone is wondering, the tire size are 225/45-17. They only rub on big bumps. However, doesn't affect the awesome turning radius. The car still rides smooth, but the handling is better.
