Post First time MB owner!

After 4 ragtops in my life, I have finally parted ways with my most recent fling of 12 years, a 2000 VW Cabrio, and upgraded to a 2001 SLK 230. I found it with 87k miles and suspect it had gone through a family with teenagers at some point. Lots of wear points to resolve!

I have already learned to change the oil, replace the battery, enter a radio code, and adjust the latch cables in the vario roof. It came with the owner guide book and I am amazed at the wealth of knowledge printed there.

The past couple days I have been reading online and learning from others. This evening I did the cassette mod adding an aux input to the original Alpine CM1910. Sweet! Now I can put off buying a new head unit and use some of that money for a SmartTOP module.
