newbie here

hello all, I new to the benz world just purchased a 04 E500, 65,000 from a private dealer for the wifey, she wanted a BMW but was offered what I think was a great deal on this car so, in the driveway it sits. There are a few things I don't like, first I know nothing about the car so I am open to all the info I can find about the car. Second, I like to do general maint. and can not on this car, no haynes manual to use (lol) so, it's find a bootleg CD with the service manual , since i heard that the manual is no longer in production. I also was told that there is no dipstick ( what!!!) the computer checks the oil? what tha. oh well, I am very lucky to know folks that are car crazy and have did their homework and know some things about MB's. I also keep my cars a long time, my last was a jeep grand (93 with 300+ miles) and I did all maint. on it. EXCELLENT vehicle for me no trouble at all other than the usual things. But if stories are true, I will also have this car a long time or just two years depending on the quality of the car. It's funny how people react to this car in public, I am not use to because this is all new to me. Some people look in amazement, some snob their noses , but to me it's just a car with lots of gadgets and a great ride and feel, not to take any away but, I think a lot of cars are over rated and emphasis on brands. They all have the same charateristics: low cost in repairs, good quality, lemons,safe ect.. Well , I've said enough I am glad to be a part of this site and hope you all have great luck with your cars also..
