Hi from Holland
I've had a couple of Mercs (190D 2.5, 300D, E270cdi) before I got myself a completely different car.
That's more like a point-car....no fun, but practical.
For fun I bought a smart Roadster and made some mods to it.
Not so long ago a friend asked me what car to buy....it had to be a convertible, but not a soft top and within a certain price range.
I ended up looking for SLK's and found one: a 2002 200K with 225K km's on it...with good looking leather interior, xenon and some more options.
A lot of km's but I took the gamble and promised her to keep it on the road.
Since then I have been luking in this forum and others.
Found out about the oily cable on the camshaft magnet and replaced/added the cable and magnet.
There was already some oil in the plug, but I hope I mofified the cable in time!
Didn't see oil at the ECU...
Cleaned the MAF sensor, changed oils and filters, spark plugs.....
Let's hope she can enjoy the car for a long time!
