Greetings all! I love the Benz! I bought my first one (1983, 500 SEC) in 1997, figuring it would need less repair than an American made car. I immediately had the valve seals and timing belt changed on it. Other than that, the car runs strong and has been very reliable. I just bought a 1996, white S420, with 122k miles. In less than a month, I have started working on repairing a small ding, and now I am researching the start lock-out system, and all the other things dealing with the car not starting! ...I love pre-90's cars! Anyway, repairing my toys is what I do to balance out being an attorney in Chicago. I know this forum to be invaluable, and am glad to be here!
