    Hi everyone, succumbed to temptation and now the proud owner of a 2001 clk.230
    This is my second Merc, the first being a w115 twenty five years ago. (two tons and no power steering.) Delighted with it, nice to see that so many years later the attention to build quality is still the same. I got attracted to the elegant lines and that great interior combination of walnut and leather.
    I may occasionally pick a few brains on maintainance as I cannot find a manual for these. Anything I should look out for?

    15 years ago, it was a dream come through :)

    bought it from a dealer in Stockholm (£10k cheaper than UK; at the time there were no UK allocations available), and drove it home via Germany with roof down, music blaring. very memorable.
