Regards fellow Benzheads

Thought I'd join ( possible rejoining, couldn't remember old password) after purchasing a 2006 S 65 (CPO) last weekend. I have had 7 previous MBZ, including an E 55, E 500, E 430, E 420, ML 430, 300 CE, and a 180. This is by far, obviously, the most outrageous of them all. I have put on 700 mile this week but plan to do less then that a month from now on. Hope to hear from anyone and please forgive any delay in response as I travel for work and maintain a crazy schedule. I live on the central east coast of Florida but work in the mid Gulf Coast states (AL, MS, LA, FL Panhandle)

Welcome! From anyother fello Floridian Well 1/2 FL 1/2 NY. When transporting a car tie it down all around for the safe part. You just never know.

Welcome to Benzworld, it should be tied down at the/ around the wheels a good flatbed driver would know this. Also there is a towing eye in the tool kit, it fits in the front bumper and should be tied down with this also.
