Question Two Questions

I removed the yellowish plastic panel underneathe the dash instrument cluster on my 95 E320 wagon and noticed a relatively large silver box in there. There is only one knob switch on the front that has a I / 0 position on it, and if you turn it to 0 the box can be pulled out. It says Bosch on it and has a multi-pin connecter on the back. What is it?

Also, and this may be a stupid question, but under the hood there is a plastic tank on the drivers side right behind the headlight that says hydraulic oil. Is it for the brakes? I see there is another tank off the master cylinder, though, so what is it?

Last question: On the tailgate of the Benz Wagon there is a black emblem that has the MB logo and says "flagship." Is this just standard or some kind of special edition? It also has a sticker on the windshield that is signed by someone Daimler.

Not sure about what the silver box is, but the tank for hydraulic oil is for the self-leveling rear suspension. Brake fluid goes in the reservoir on top of the master cylinder. I don't know about the "flagship" sticker, but I know that Mercedes (for a very long time at least) had a sticker at the bottom left hand corner of the windshield reading "A Daimler Benz Product" and below it was a reproduction of Gottleib Daimler's signature. The newer version of the sticker reads "A Mercedes Benz Product". I wonder if the latest version says "A DaimlerChrysler Product"

O.K, thanks. I think Mercedes is devalued since they have combined with Chrysler. Good for Chrysler, with improvement in their cars, but why buy a CLK 230 when you can buy a Crossfire? Or an E-Class wagon when you can have a Pacifica?
