Greetings from Connecticut (and Vermont)

Hi All,
I bought my first Benz about a month ago, and have been reading steadily every since. Although this is my first MB, I have been reading web forums and fixing things for a for a few years now (everyone needs a hobby)

I have lots of repairs to do. The car has 130K on it. Most importantly:

Fix the Check engine light so I can pass CT emissions.
Remove seat and fix/replace the occupancy sensor.
Re-attach and refurbish the rain sensor.
New front shocks
Ipod integration

Then I can start working on all new fluids so I have a base to start a PM schedule.

The car actually runs great, very quiet and smooth ride. I love it. This is my weekend and after work car. (I drive a 3/4 ton Pick-up all day for my business.) I put about 20K a year driving back and forth to my ski house in VT. This car rides soooo much better than my Subaru Outback, and gets better mileage.

Thanks for reading.

Ski hard or go home!
