Like I've said earlier, I'm glad I followed everyone's advice here on the forum. The shock/struts work well.
I took the car out to Redwood Rd (Castro Valley, CA for those local folks) and drove approximately 8/10ths to check handling and the car's overall composure. I was surprised at how nimble and confidence-inspiring the car handled. In comparison to my other car (Miata), the ride was supple and obviously the heavier Mercedes wasn't as quick around the corners. However, the disparity isn't that much, and I drove the MB around feeling less tense and more relaxed (maybe because the Miata was twitchier, torque-steer prone and smaller in comparison).
Next.... autocross! I'm serious!!!
