Hello Benzworld, is there room for another one in here?
My name is Tim, I live in London and I finally bought my first Mercedes this year, the model I've wanted for a long time but never really needed until now. After 6 months of ownership, I'm still amazed that a 16-year-old family car be so practical, useful, relaxing and classy. It gets the best kind of attention wherever we take it. My wife loves it, my daughter loves it, and I'm hoping I'll be able to run it for years to come.
As you all know, there's no fan like a new fan and I have read endless posts here that have helped me satisfy my blossoming W124 obsession. With your help I have already diagnosed and fixed problems that no manual or handbook could have helped with, and although I've already spent some good money on my car at my local specialist - more of that in another thread soon - I have also saved some expense too. I'm not going to be adding any new mechanical expertise to the forum but I will contribute my own experiences of the faults I've encountered and the fixes that worked for me in return for the advice I'm bound to need in future.
Thanks for your time, happy motoring and see you around on the forums.
