    Just wanted to say hello to everyone as a new member. I've just bought my first Benz, after many years of owning various cars, that being a 52 plate C32 AMG.

    A few brief details about me. My name is Garry, I'm 36 and live in Hertfordshire. Not married and got no kids so I can throw money at a car and not get moaned at! :)

    I'm fairly knowledgeable when it comes to cars, although as this car is my first foray into Mercedes, I'll no doubt be asking questions quite often as I like to know my cars inside and out.

    Be good to get to know people on here, there are always a few characters on every forum, I'll find out which one's they are in time, no doubt!

    :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! :)

    dokalj, in response to your questions, it is free from rust apart from one stone chip just above the grille and that is getting treated this week. I researched these cars thoroughly before I bought one and was well aware of the problem with Mercedes and their galvanising issues of that era! Also, every electrical item works as it should and the last owner replaced the usual failed heated seat bases with new items at the end of last year.

    Fingers crossed it stays that way! :D

    Welcome Gary, enjoy the C32. Have some spare cash set aside, they can cost you a fair whack to keep on the road.

    Cheers for the advice mate, I'm lucky because my girlfriend's brother is a technician at my local dealer and will do any work at cost price for parts and a drink for the labour! But I'm aware that these cars need looking after a little more than the average runaround! :) Saying that, my annual mileage is only around 5k a year, so I'm not too unduly concerned...yet! lol
