First Time Benz Owner

Hello All,

I purchased my first MB last week. These forums helped me make my decision between a BMW or MB. Being born in south Germany, I just couldn't betray my roots. I bought a 2007 C230 sport sedan with 12k miles on it. There were a few options that I thought were built in but after researching these forums (after I purchased) it was very helpful to determine what I do and don't have on my C230. I finally decided to register as a member after my husband drove my car yesterday and the check engine light came on this morning. Since it runs fine and already completed a full inspection prior to purchasing, I'm going to check the gas cap recommended in these forums. I think hubby put a little gas in it yesterday. Worse case - still under warranty.

I also just realized that the logo emblem on my wheels are mismatched. I have three of the blue lining emblems and one of just the MB logo. I hear the MB logo is the newer version but I kind of like the blue lined one better. Since they are only $15 to replace, I was looking for recommendations on which style I should get.
