400 mi later - happy new driver

Okay, I paid and then drove it back yesterday from Bay Area down the 101 to LA. The more I drove it, the better it ran. Some 7 hours of a comfortable ride.

I admit - I felt great, special, rich and vane looking past the perfect cumulus reflections on the hood and at the star guiding me through hills and along the ocean. You don't know anything about this car 'till you get behind the wheel. The minute I took off I felt it. Bach, Schubert, Mozart as my companions (that's why the new Blaupunkt in the dash does not bother me).

Aaaanyhow, I am new to MB. Not new to cars - if there is anything to be done, I'll try it. HI TO EVERYONE HERE

Parked now in front of my house (garage needs to be rearrange - space is to short - darn it)

The car is a driver and far from perfect which makes it perfect for me to drive .

One thing, I need to change soon is the wheels. I would like a set of the original steel rims + hub-caps. Maybe I can find them here on the forum - or any ideas where else!?

One little accessory though, I put on today:
