introducing....ME (and my shadow)

Hi, Tanya here from Southern Maryland. I've had my 1999 SL500 for about a year now. I really love the car but it's been a while since I've had a car that required constant scratching behind the ears. She likes to go topless, anything over 50 degrees.

Repaired or replaced since I got it... New tires, brakes, front pully seal/gasket, catalytic converter, stop/brake light switch.

A word on the stop/brake light switch, numerous fuses (FUSE 10) (would hit the brakes and the instrument cluster would die, replace the fuse and would get a check engine light, hit the brake and lose everything again.....thought it might be the switch, turned out to be a bulb. NICE!

Now... P1747, door panels have turned to a sticky mush (I assume due to sun and/or chemicals), CD changer says "NO Magazine" and Phone says "NO Phone", and I think the ESP is activating prematurely. Oh, and the leather section of my steering wheel jacket (where the blinkers connect) is loose so when I hit the blinkers, IT SPINS

But everytime I drive her, I remember why I put so much time into her.
(I think her name is Julie although I don't know why...I don't even know anyone by that name)

I look forward to meeting you all and learning more about my car. (and everyone elses!)
