Post Hello I am Nathan

I am new here so I thought I would introduce myself. I live in Clemson, SC and practice law when I am not fooling with my car(s) . I recently purchased a 2005 C55 and love it. I owned a 1999 SL500 for about two years before selling it. I then bought a Honda Accord thinking I would be more practical. Umm, that car lasted all of six months before I again had the craving for another Mercedes (and a V8 engine to be honest). So, I sold the Honda and bought the C55. My wife drives a 2006 ML350 so she understood. Anyway, I am really glad I joined this forum as I have already learned so many things about my car that I did not know. Thanks and I look forward to chatting with all of you.

Nathan

Welcome to Benzworld!! I tell people that I drive an SL and and ML because I can't afford Honda or Toyota parts. (a neighbor just spent $414 on a fuel pump for his late model Toyota. I drove a Scion xB for a while, thinking that the fuel economy would outweigh the other aspects of the car...it did not. I sold it and got the ML, and my insurance bill went DOWN by $200 a year.

Hope you enjoy the forums!!!

Kevin,

Thanks for the welcome message. I like your reasoning regarding MB v. other cars and I agree with you. I will say that I spent a fair amount in repairs on my SL (the power top malfunctioned and then the cylinders had to be replaced in the windshield), but it was worth it as I love SL's. By the way, your 560 is beautiful. My father had several SL's while I was growing up and I loved every one of them. He had several 450's and a couple 380's, but never a 560. I always wanted him to get a 560. Have a good day and thanks again for your response.

Nathan
