Post New to Mercedes ownership

Hi all,

Firstly thankyou for setting up a site like this. I have been lurking here for awhile getting information before steeping in to buy our first Merc. We have just purchased a 2001 E240 (W210 series) Elegance. The car has only 63,000km documented and full service history and is in very nice conditioned. Had a pre-purchase inspection done and one problem found was a ticking sound from the engine when the car was under heavy acceleration. However when the car was revved hard put not moving the ticking sound wasn't present. So i'm going to get a specialist to look at it and give me an opinion. If anyone has heard of something like that it would be great to know your opinion.

Thanks again and I look forward to whatever contributions I can offer in the future.
