Later Model Mercedes

Post by Z33Fairlady » Thu 01 Feb, 2007 2:43 pm

Hi all,

As you have noticed, just joined this forum.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I presume this forum is largely focused on older spec/model Mercedes?

Are there many late model Mercedes enthusiasts on this forum?

Personally, I don't have a Mercedes myself. One day I will consider one. For now, I drive a 300C (5.7 HEMI) and a 350Z.

However, why did I join this forum? Well, my family, particularly my father is a huge Mercedes enthusiast. His household consists of a Mercedes W208 CLK230K, Mercedes R171 SLK350 (mum's), Mercedes W203 C Class C200K (my sisters) and a 300C SRT8 (6.1 HEMI).

Cheers,
Z33Fairlady

Yes, I think that is fair to say we are focussed on the older models as you will see from the individual models. Discussion on the newer stuff does come up and the forum sponsor will also have technical knowledge.

Do you know about the NSW club forum? I'm sure there is a link on here somewhere. This is an interesting forum itself and there is perhaps more discussion of the newer ones.

My dad drives the 300C SRT8; it is his second car. His CLK is somewhat neglected now.
