New here, saying hi!

Greetings fellow MB owners!

I am a new MB owner as of 2 days ago. Just purchased a used 2008 E350 4-matic from a friend but it needs some work. Before we get into that, a little about myself.

I am a Colorado native currently living in Indiana. Was a mechanic (mostly US and JP vehicles) before I went to school for my BSEE (Bachelors in Electrical Engineering). Ever since I have been more of a computer guy.

Own two Honda Accords ('80 and '07), a '78 IH Scout II and now an '08 E350.

I am very experienced working on vehicles but so far I am blown away at how different this MB is. At every turn it feels like the designing engineers went out of their way to make it difficult to service. Special tools, no transmission dipstick, torx, 12 point, etc are rampant. With all of this being said, I am up for the challenge but it's clear to me I cannot go it alone. Hence, the forum.

I am excited to get and hopefully someday give help to fellow owners, learn, grow and keep our vehicles on the road.

Cheers and seeya out there!
