hi all,
how i found myself here i am not quite sure ? ..
been a merc man for the last 20 years .

started off with a 92 w140 300sd ,a big black mean car with 20" amg monoblocks.( K146 BOL ) man i loved that car and in the 6years or so i owned it i never had a single problem with it , regular servicing was all ..

next up was a well worn sliver 2000 w163 ml270 cdi ,150,000 miles on the clock but it was a trooper and i liked it a lot (X2 BUC), so i looked for a fresher one that led me the next

3 year old at the time (2004) w163 ml270cdi ,one owner ,fmbsh, 30,000 mile
(B16 YUR) , which i still own ,that is until Friday ,85,600 miles on it now ,had a few issues with it ie new gearbox and turbo .

in between there was a 2000 w210 e320cdi ,what a fantastic car (X556 OCT),only sold a few weeks back and wish i never ,3.5 years trouble free motoring , this led me to buying a newer e class ,

2005 w211 e320cdi , only owned this car since last November and what a bloody
nightmare this has been , honestly its spent more time in the garage since i owned it than on the road ,, the list goes on and on with the problems i have had with it ,, ie replaced engine ,sbc pump ,water pump ,steering rack ,injectors ,radiators & pipes
egr valves ,manifold and now its currently in the garage waiting to have a replacement or reconditioned gearbox ,, phew i hate this car . i have spent way more on repairs than i paid for it and still have to pay for the gearbox yet :frown:..
anyhow this all brings me too here slkworld and (LI YUR) friday i am picking up a December 2012 slk 250cdi amg in black ,17,000 miles on the clock :grin::grin::grin: cant wait ,,,,,,,,,,,,, and dont even care if its a mid life ???????
