Hello everyone, my name is Stefan and I recently obtained ownership of a 1996 C220 (or W202 I think) and I figured it would be good to be part of an online community that can help me out should I run into any issues (in fact I already have one which is why I registered but this isn't the place for that!) and perhaps I may know something, though it is unlikely, to help out someone else on these forums.
So a bit about myself and my car, then. My C220 is in pretty decent shape, the main problem being that the radio display needs to be replaced (but that's too expensive for me, so I just listen for station announcements to figure out what frequency I'm on) but the motor still works perfectly and boy do I love that turn radius. She has just under 120k miles on her right now. My dad bought the car in 1998, and then gave it to my step mother in 2002 or 2003 when he bought an ML500 and when my step mother upgraded to a 2007 E350 (I think that's the year) I got the C220 (my father was born in Bisingen, near Stuttgart, so he's always adored Mercedes-Benz vehicles). I myself am an undergraduate student at California State University, Chico (rest assured, I do not let anyone that is, shall we say, "over-partied", anywhere near my car) hoping to graduate in the fall of 2011 or spring of 2012.
Well I guess that about covers it, thank you for taking the time to read this and I'll see you out on the forums!
