New owner of a W202 - 2000 C280

Hi everyone,

Well I finally did it. A little over a week ago I purchased my first Mercedes Benz. It's always been a dream of mine to own one of these. It's a burgundy 2000 C280 with beige leather interior. It has 145000 km on the odometer and in very clean shape. Only needed rear brakes to pass the safety requirements.

Since getting it I've put on about 2000 km (trips to the cottage) and everything seems to be working fine. I've given it a thorough cleaning (inside and out). Applied a coat of wax and conditioned the leather. My wife is very pleased (no small achievement). I hope to continue to post happy news and some pics in the near future.

Enjoy your drive,

BenzNumberOne

Now its time to get dirty and frustrated, then dirty then frustrated.
