Hello, My name is John and I live in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and drive a 1998 E430 and a 2002 SLK230 Kompressor. I visited this site for the first time yesterday after discovering a pool of transmission fluid under the E Class and was relieved to discover that others have had this issue and that it was not necessarily a super expensive repair. We really like our Benzes and hope to get many more years of good service from them.

Thank you for having me as a member.

I am English and work for a large group of specialist workshops located all over China. I am the workshop manager in Shanghai but I am also responsible for China eastern region. So when I am not running my workshop I am on a Plane/train/boat lol. I just arrived back from a trip to Shenzhen/Hong Kong/Guangzhou. Nice way to see China.

Shanghai

You forgot rickshaw in your modes of transportation.

I worked with a US automotive seat belt tier one supplier in Mexico and was responsible for shipping up to 16 million seat belt assemblies and components monthly, mostly components, for assembly in their operations in Shanghai for GM Shanghai and a lesser amount were being forwarded to GM Shenzhen.

Met and communicated with some very well educated and plesant people while working on that program. How do you like it there?
