Greets to everyone.

I just purchased a '05 C230 (w203?) Kompressor Sport. In my opinion, it is in beautiful shape and well cared for (visually). It seems to also have been well maintained mechanically by the previous owner. It has 51k miles. It is white with the light grey interior. I think the windows are tinted with a slight bluish tint as through the windows the color of the interior seems like an Ice blue/grey. I don't even know what the exact name of the interior color is yet.

It is not my first MBZ, we also have (since new), a 1994 E320 (w124) with 220k miles and still running really strong and looking great (aside from a paint issue on the roof of the car).

We've also had several BMW's (740i, X5, 325i) and I've quite enjoyed each of them also. I cannot say whether I am a MBZ person or a BMW person as I have nothing but good things to say about each.

This newest car is replacing a '01 BMW 325i which was an excellent car (accident took it out). I almost replaced it with a '03 325i, but found this with lower miles and figured I'd give it a try.

Well, hello. I figured I would join a forum to get information/ideas/DIY and share on this and the older car. I've browsed here in the past, but didn't join.

Glad to be part of this forum/community.
