Recently purchased 03 clk55 Questions? / comments!

Hello, I have recently purchased(3days ago) a used stock 2003 clk55 for $40,000 w/23000 miles (did I get a good price? I thought so) Car is in above average condition. I have already put on H&R sport springs and 19x8.5 front 19x9.5 rear Hamann replica wheels w/235/35/19 Kumho ecsta spt frnt. 265/30/19 rear. So far I have enjoyed the car, great performance, but find all of the systems to be a bit fussy to learn and operate (i.e. setting clock, checking oil level, climate control, worthless center console, get the picture). In the past I have had a couple of Porsches (1987 911 Carrera, 1997 986 Boxster) and several BMW's all 3 series. I found the systems in those cars to be very user friendly. I really love this car though, not complaining and will acclimate as I'm sure all of u have. I plan on further performance enhancements and would appreciate any comments from others who have modified their benzes. Question, the stock rear calipers and rotors look small on this car and don't look near as cool as the Amg fronts that are also crossdrilled, any ideas on how to upgrade? I'd like them to match. Who sells the best ECU upgrade for this car? Are the xenon lights worth the price of the upgrade? Approx. $800. Are there any aftermarket center consoles w/2cup holders? Any and all comments/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Mike
