If you're used to wrenching on an Audi, an MBZ will be no big deal.

If you're used to Japanese vehicles(as I mostly am), these things are both a huge PITA and maintenance pigs.

Putting around town for awhile, then a valve adjustment, then an unusual 3k of highway miles? I would adjust the valves again before doing anything.

Got you, didn't know some don't use DEF, I should have done more research. By all means, add the DEF if that's what it takes to meet emissions.
