I've just registered here . . @ Benzworld . . and it's about time. Looks to be a great forum with lots of detail about the world's finest car!
I got interested in Mercedes when my old Cadillac died! Drove it for 18+ years BION but it had leaks from everywhere so it was time to move on.
A friend told me about great place to buy a MB so I checked it out and that was the start of my Mercedes experience. It was a '91 190E 2.3L in fire-engine red!
Since then, I've had '93 Sportline (white w/ black interior), '94 E320 coupe (black w/ grey trim) and my current car, '94 S500 coupe that I've bought in '98. Been driving it ever since.
Thanks to my friend and tech, Pat @ Exclusive Motors, I learned a lot from him by watching and helping. What he didn't know about an MB hasn't been written. Other shops sent their cars to him to diagnose. Unfortunately, he died in a motorcycle accident and the world lost a great tech and friend.
It's there were the "Cool Harness" came into being. It was tested on the myriad of cars at his shop. That was in 2000. Still going strong today.
Glad to be here and hope I can assist others. Take the time to browse my W140 web pages for repair tips and places to purchase parts.
