I suppose I should get around to posting here...

I've been on the W210 forum in the runup to and aftermath of buying my 2001 E320 4Matic wagon. Still, I haven't introduced myself yet...so here goes.

There's a reason my avatar is what it is. I'm really the Tron Guy.

I've wanted a Mercedes for years. As a kid in Houston, driving a Mercedes was the sign that you'd arrived.

When I got to the point I could afford one, about 2000 or so, I looked at the ML320, and the Lexus RX300. I bought the Lexus, and then a 2007 RX350 to replace it. Then the economy went south, and I've been buying used cars ever since.

This time, when my 2000 Subaru Outback Limited got too expensive to fix, I decided it was time to look around for a Mercedes. I found a few on Craigslist, but the money didn't come in in time, and then I found this forum and it was suggested that I might not want a cheap car. A bit more digging found one on a used car dealer's lot. I turned to this forum for advice, and got a lot. It helped me make the decision confidently.

Now, I've got the car, and am tackling the little things while I wait on funds to tackle the two big repairs it needs right off. So far, I'm very happy with it. We'll see what I think in a year or so. This forum does seem like it'll make a big difference in how well I'll be able to enjoy the car.
