- We were going to have to buy a used model.
- We would need to do a lot of the care, maintenance, and upgrades ourselves, on a DIY basis. We could not afford to pay Mercedes-certified technicians more money per hour to service the thing than we ourselves were making in our own employment.
After about six weeks of searching, we found our Interstate, but that's a story for another post. Suffice it to say that, in the first few weeks of our ownership, we have already benefited substantially from the collective wisdom offered by the online community, and it is our intention to reciprocate where and when we can so that we are able to support the other DIY-ers just as they have unknowingly supported us.
We welcome ourselves to your Interstate world. Glad we could join you.
|No, that would not be us - ours is going to be well-used and well-investigated. We didn't own it more than about 2 weeks before we started pulling stuff apart and upgrading it. But you'll have to wait for those forthcoming posts.|
