Benz Noob (W211)

Howdy all, I am a Benz noob. Picked up my `05 E500 4matic about two weeks ago with 41K on the clock. So far I am very happy with it, it replaced a `07 Chrysler 300 touring. I have noticed that the 300 had a lot of the things that the Benz has, like the cruise control stalk (which I hated in the Chrysler, bad placement) and the shift pattern is completely identical.

The previous owner of mine performed a few mods to it before I took it from him. The windows are all 20% or darker, its sitting on black and chome 20s, he lowered the airmatic with washers, had the front bumper fixed so there would be no plate mounting holes and removed the hood ornament for the disc style and changed the grille (he told me what it was off of but I forgot).

It sat under a sprinkler on the car lot and I wasnt about to have somebody pretend to detail it and end up putting swirl marks in it. I have the stuff, Ill do it myself. Due to me not cleaning it good yet, I havent taken any high quality pics, but I do have the pic off of their site.
