Hello all!

I am officially a Benz owner, after the last 12 years of BMW's I have moved to an R Class CDI. My choice of the R320 from my X5 was for 2 main reasons more space (seating for 6) and better fuel economy, well maybe 3 reasons seeing how the X5 had 290,000kms on it and only expensive bills were on the horizon. I have had it for a full day and it clearly requires snow tires after last nights storm. So far I love it!

A self confessed car lover I have visited most major car museums in NA as well as VW Wolfsburg (excellent, big), Porsche Stutgart (old small & large new museums) & BMW Munich, this years trip will include the Mercedes Museum...which I hear is excellent!

Cars owned not in any specific order; '73 Corvette, Chevy Beretta & Citation, GMC Stepside PU, GMC Canyon PU, Ford Ranger, 2 Diesel Golfs & 1 Diesel Jetta

Then came the BMW's; '95 318i, '98 328, '00 528, '02 530 M SPort (best "car" I ever owned), '02 X5 3.0 & now the R Class

Next addition is going to be a Porsche 911.

To wrap up I look forward to gaining some additional knowledge of all that is Mercedes and hopefully be able to offer my assitance to the membership.
