First Mercedes, Kansas Intro

I thought I would introduce myself since I decided to stop trolling and finally register today! I recently purchased an 06' E-320 CDI, Silver on black. I absolutely love the car. I must admit, I felt a little ostentatious buying a Mercedes, but the car fits my needs perfectly. I drive 30,000+ miles per year for work, so mpg and comfort were important. My dad just bought an 09' jetta tdi.. I actually get better mpg with my driving style in my car(37.5 mpg @ 80mph average over 250 strait highway miles), not to mention it's twice as roomy!
So, a little about myself:

-I'm a 22 year old recent Unversity of Kansas graduate
-I have a business with my father selling durable medical equipment
-I am beginning work in the financial service industry
-I am annoyed wth people assuming the parents bought the car!
-I live in Lawrence and work in both Wichita and Overland Park

Future mods:
-I plan DIY on the minor service issues, and need to get caught up on major
-Bluetoth and possibly sirius
-Get navi working once the dealer sends the dvd that was removed from the car
-Car payment delete mod!
-Some kind of doggy cover for back seat (using fleece blanket now)

I don't know how involved I will be in the local mercedes community. I know there is a local club in Kansas City, but since my car is neither sporty, nor exotic I am not sure how much I would bring to it! I do appreciate the information from this site, as well as some owners I have met. I will try to share as much useful info as I can as well. Cell phone pictures are no good, and I left my camera at the parents, so pics will come later.

A belated WELCOME and another plug for the local club: Home | Kansas City MBCA Club

We've got a lot of diesel owners in the club. You would be very welcome!

My handle on the site is "slik560". Look us up. We have a lot of things planned for 2010
