Smile newboy

Hi Im Kev.
I was mechanic a long time ago(when I had hair) I live in Scotland.

I just bought a 6 year old slk 200 auto tip black with 80k from a small dealer..
I have an engine management light. The mechanic at the dealer tested it and said 2 faults were showing. 1) air mass flow 2) camshaft sensor
He thought it would be air mass so he is replacing it today.

Can anyone please give any ideas what I should look for in terms of faults and potential disasters with this car. I would like to maintain it best I can to save it breaking on me as much as poss. I did read a bit about a timing sensor???
It drives really well just a little heavy on petrol but so far I do love it.
Thanks in advance
