Hi to All, I am the, sometimes, proud owner of a 2000 ML 270CDi. I joined after the ML started pulling truuks on me. Read so many threads on this forum, trying to find a solution to my problem, I had to join. Well, some of the advice on the forum is really very useful. Thanks to those people whom are such dedicated MB owners that you are prepared to share knowledge with others. By the way: I live in South Africa. Plenty of oil burners over here. Let's keep the Benzes rolling.
