Questions from a new member: New 2009 C300 4Matic Sport

Hi all, new to the forums here. Just bought the new C-Class as a replacement for my 'economy' car/daily driver the E320 (Don't laugh! MPG of the E320 vs ML500 is no joke!)

I have a few basic questions...

Firstly, what was everyone's first scheduled maintenance like? I went in at about +-1500 miles and paid nothing. (Dealer is Bayside Helms Bros. in NY)The invoice shows a lengthy list of inspections but nothing changed other than the oil, which they asked/advised me to do beforehand.

Second, what are the differences between the 2009 and 2008?
From what I can see, the things missing are
- Power-folding windows (I had these on my loaner when my delivery date was postponed a week and I had already traded in my 2003 E320)
- Yellow turn signals replaced by red LEDs
- Halogen reverse lights replaced by white LED reverse lights.

Is there anything else I missed out on by getting an '09? The rebates were great on the '08 (~$3000USD) but I opted for the 'newer' model.

Also can anyone confirm whether or not the C has swiveling headlamps? I had swiveling lights + corner-illuminating foglamps on my '06 ML500 and have really grown to love them...

Finally, sorry for not using the search box! I know its there but this 'waste of bandwith' will be a LONE instance.
