    ...and I'm a M-class nut :-) Most of you know me already, so I don't think I'll have to introduce myself too much. For those of you who don't, I drive an early build MY2000 ML320 Elegance (Canadian model). I'm also host of Townhall's Vans and Aftermarket & Accessories message boards.

    I just want to welcome you guys over here to the owner's club area. Good to see some other classy SUV folks over here. Welcome on board. Maybe we can have a gathering sometime in the NY/NJ/PA area for Isuzus and MBs, if we aren't too low on the socio-economic scale for you guys ;)

I got the latest door latches free :) when I went in for regular service, so doors no longer rattle. I also just put Michelins on it(just past 40k miles) and they ride GREAT!!

    My name is Steven and I have, or I should say, my wife has a 00ML430, white w/ grey interior, sunroof, Bose w/ 6 cd changer and intregrated fog lights. This is our second ML we have owned, we traded a 98ML320 with 39,000 in on this one. I had good luck with my 320 and expect to enjoy the same with the 430. My dealer is fabulous, no complaints on the purchase or the service.

    Hi, I'm Ken in Boston. I'm an Internet addict and M-Class enthusiast. No matter what happens, I have this urge to share information. My wife has threatened to stop paying the electricity bill so I'll stop using the computer!

    Uhhh. Never this instead:

    I also admin the M-Class Outpost and the M-Class Mailing List. The M-Class Outpost has a neat feature for M-Class owners to log their experiences with their personal ML. You can check out my config there if you're curious what I have on my silver ML320 that's covered w/ salt and dirt...
  • Hi can you tell me where I can get ML chrome strips and how much are they, easy to install?
  • ometofuometofu Posts: 53
    Cliff, the strips are so easy to install, when it first came out, many has concerns about its durabilities... it has been 18months now... now issues what so ever. Is easier and cheaper(thought, I still think is ripped off) than replacing the whole chrille. The strips is available everywhere... and many other site... I got my from (they're one of the first US company carries it.)


    PS. They're about 180bucks.

    Hello everyone. Glad to be here. I drive a 96 C280 and my wife drives a 99 ML320. These cars are addictive. I'm on the process of putting a ML55 Xenon lights to my wife's ML320. Hope it will work. It should work, Robert say so.
  • Hi,
    My name is Dave and a MB enthusiast. I own a 00 ML320 in Azure Blue with 4k miles and a 99 C230K in black with 55k miles. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their insight and contributions to the M class Town Hall, especially Drew. It is the most informative site for the M class.

    Special Event Chat with Ed Hellwig

    Tues., Jan. 30th, 5-6pm PT/8-9pm ET

    Ed Hellwig - Associate Editor,

    Associate editor Ed Hellwig came to Edmunds with a diverse automotive background that included stints as a gas station grease monkey, automotive spy photographer, and ice rink Zamboni driver. Ed spent five years making sure he hated cold weather at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he somehow earned a degree in American history between beer runs and football games. Upon returning, he proclaimed "snow sucks" and forever pledged his allegiance to the Southern California sunshine. Prior to joining Edmunds, Ed toiled under the iron fist of Tom Lindamood at A&M Specialists, a press vehicle logistics company, as a road-tester and delivery driver. While tooling around in Bentleys and Porsches was less than grueling, Ed just couldn't shake the editorial urge and jumped at the chance to join the Edmunds team. He's now responsible for writing road tests, editing our "Future Telling" column, and assisting in performance testing.

  • Hi, my name is Randy. I just bought my wife a black 2000 ML430 with 9k miles on it. 1,500 miles so far and no complaints.

    I am a car fanatic and spend most of my free time making sure all our cars look better than the day they were delivered!

    I really enjoy this and the other town halls at Edmonds as I read about each SUV I was looking at through thier respective discussions (Land Rover,X5,MDX,ML) before I made my final choice.

    Thanks for all the great discussions. Randy

    Hi! I am PhilT from Colorado, 2001 Desert Silver ML430.

    Ours is the one with the Chrome wheels that Drew does not like!

    Have more then 6800 miles on it so far. The only issue seems to be a bad tire - cant seem to get them balanced.

    Have seen lots of snow - one beck of a snow mobile!
  • drew_drew_ Posts: 3,382
    I like the rest of your truck, Phil :-) Especially the entertainment system, being a big gadget freak myself. Hope to see some of your pictures posted in the Photo Gallery.
