Post 2000 C230 K - It's new to me!

Greetings MB Lovers,
To celebrate my good year in sales I purchased from a local person a 2000
C230 kompressor for $2850. It appeared to be in good condition but it has high mileage and needed new tires. I made my decision to purchase based on my sisters good experience with her 1999 C230 k and Consumer Reports recommendation that it a good used car investment. So far I have spent $2200 figuring out why the check engine light kept coming on. Driven 100 miles now and no light. (yeah) It could have been three different issues. Aging rubber fuel lines leaking, small leak in fuel pressure regulator and an issue with the purge canister. I've had all that stuff replaced and hope this will be all for a while.
I am so grateful to have found this site. Although I don't work on my own cars I like to know what's going on and this site is perfect for gathering information and sharing experiences.
I really love driving the C230 because the experience is so different from driving an SUV, which is all I have owned the last 20 years.
Thanks for posting and see you on the road, if you can catch me!
