Congratulations! We had one of those, a "Sport" model, for three years (a 1999) on a lease and it was really reliable. I did not have to learn much more than changing oil and filter work the entire time we had the car, and it had nothing fixed on warranty. The car wanted a manual transmission though, and we got a 1988 300E 5-speed to replace it when the lease ended. Good luck and hope you enjoy the car as much as we did. Jim
