Thanks for the info! I should have a decent transmission with fresh fluid at this point, and I am probably going to get MBs extended warranty package. I have never owned or worked with anything but manual transmissions before I bought the 300E and the C230, so this is a new area to me - all the help and insights are appreciated.
