Hi All --

I've been a Benz owner since we bought our 1984 300TD in 1989. We still have "Good Old Martha", as a matter of fact. I recently upgraded from a 1989 300SE, with just shy of 300K miles, to a 2000 e430, with 157K on it.

I got a good deal on the car, but the message window within the speedometer area constantly tells me of issues, throwing me "Visit Workshop" messages. (ABS/ESP,B.A.S., Lamps out, excessive oil level). I am hoping most of these are switch/sensor issues. I see that a lot of these issues have been covered here, and I hope to fix as many as I can on my own, and leave the rest to the pros.

BTW, my real name is Steve. I nick-named the car Al Bino, as it is a lovely Glacier White in color, with ash interior. Just what I was looking for!

Thanks for this forum, and Happy New Year, ALL !!!
