Post Hey from Minnesota (W210/W211)

New to the forums and just wanted to say hello from Lakeland, MN (near St. Paul). My wife drives a '98 E430 Sport that we have owned for approx. 5 years now and we became big MB fans once we bought that car. Just rolled 142K on the odometer and plan to drive the wheels off of this one - and then she'll want something new.

I am about to take delivery on a "new to me" low mileage '03 E500. I know, I know -- I have read all of the 'stigma' that follows the model year, but careful research on the service background, thorough inspection, multiple test drives, and the car is absolutely showroom condition with 63K on it and I bought at the right price, so if any surprises arise I can stomach it.

Since our first MB, the forums have been a huge help - I am a wrencher myself so do whatever mechanically possible that I can - and all of you have answered many, many questions.

Glad to join and look forward to regularly perusing the forums here at Benzworld and seeing some of the really, really nice cars you all have.
