Well. it is running smoothly, just that weird fast idle bit. I started it up just now and it's okay. I had my local indy put the harness in because MB wasn't gonna do anything about it. He gave me a break because I already had the head gasket done which was a big job. Let me say that I got away for way under $2k and I consider myself lucky. As someone on the board said, the dealer is really your last resort once you're out of warranty...
ps. this morning (following day) it behaved perfectly. also lubed the throttle linkage as it was causing the sticking.
