over to, or from, the dark side

After 30 years working for a domestic manufacurer, I now own a (new to me) 2000 E320. WOW. I love driving again!
After 20 years of of having a company car, I'm now tinkering, DIY, and having a ball.
(and by the way,,,does anyone know what the unit is, that is behind the rear view mirror, that adhears to the windshield?)

The thing under the mirror is the sensors housing, at least on my C230 Coupe. The photocell for the lights, rain sensor for the wipers and who knows what else.

By the way, I may have had the same feeling of awesomeness (I just made up a word, eh) after owning only domestic or the occasional Korean, when I test drove my Coupe. Nice cars! Them Germans know their 'Autos'.
