Post New Mercedes E420 Owner


My name is Sean,

I just purchased my first Mercedes Benz today.

I bought a 1997 Mercedes Benz E420.

115,000 miles. The day I picked it up I got a check engine electronics message. It was the 6th coil i think that needed to be replaced.. $82 bucks...The seller paid for it. I also had some freon added as well. Gets nice and cold but the blower doesn't seem to blow as hard as i have been used to.

Is this a common thing or is there something that can be done ?

I got a couple of things that need to be done to the car :

I need another glass for the side view mirror... It is peeling.

Also I need a Driver side door sensor so that I don't have to go to the front of the car to unlock it with the rear view mirror sensor.

Anyone have any advice on getting these parts cheap ?

I love this group and look forward to speaking with you all.
