My 1st venture into the world of Mercedes!

Hello, I'm a total newbie to the world of Mercedes and any import for that matter. I'm not sure yet if it is my good fortune, or bad luck, to now own a Mercedes!
The wife put our Jeep Cherokee into a guard rail, and we were desperate for a temporary vehicle. Found a '93 400E locally for a mere $800.
I must say I'm more than pleased with this Mercedes! Very nice ride, strong runner, nice freeway cruiser! It has 293K miles, and it's still solid, tight, no rattles, no wind leaks. And because the car spent it's first 17 years in Georgia, it's rust-free! We can't say that about many 20 year old vehicles in Michigan! lol
It has a few minor problems that I'm working to correct. That's what led me to this forum. As a former certified mechanic, I'm comfortable getting my knuckles bloody, but it's a different world under the hood of a Mercedes! Thank God for fellow members that are willing to share their knowledge.
Anyways, so far so good with my new venture into Mercedes.
