I just wanted to introduce myself.

I picked up the newest project car I've ever had. It's a 1999 SLK 230 Sport with 198K miles and a leaking transsion. With the information on this site and an other I have the needed parts and fluid on order and hope to resolve the leak.

I'm used to working on Fiats so having the option of bringing the car to a dealer shop or mechanic familiar with this car will be a new experience for me. Although I'll leave that as a last resort.

I'm just outside of Seattle and hope there are a few sunny days left in the year, once I repair the transmission and change it's fluid/filter.

High miles?

I dont know if a Mercedes-Benz ever actually wears out. My 99 has about 174K and still performs like magic. I hope you get your transmission leak taken care of and enjoy the car with the top down!

Awesome, I hope your project turns out nicely. Put some pictures up, we'd love to see the progress of your project, the more detail the better!

Fiat, hmm, reminds me of my old 850 Spyder!
