Well thanks for the warm welcome. As for the BMW jokes, Ive heard pretty much all of them, and in case you didnt know, BMW stands for broke my wallet. Which it has.

For the Benz, great car overall, but the thing has the worst pickup ever. I would like to buy something 5spd for the winter, but I have to wait for this thing to die. And with approx 450,xxx km on the body, and a whole 160,xxx km on the motor, thats not going to be anytime soon. Pretty much every part has been replaced, as this was my dad's everyday car, until bought a 2004 Jetta TDi. Man he loves Diesels. He's waiting for the price on the new MB CDi to drop in price, and plans to pick one of those up. Although milage is great on this car, I really miss the bimmer. Its one fun car to drive, and hopefully have her ready for Auto-X in the spring.

With some cash and some TLC, I think this Old school box, could be a headturner. Just some fresh paint, some european lights and some 18" AMG monoblocks, with a nice 2 inch drop. That and a faster motor, and call it a day. But stock she is, and stock she'll stay. Unless of course I find some really good deals.

Once again, thanks for the great welcome.
