New to the site!

Howdy everyone! Stumbled across this site while googling info about my car, a 1990 300E. Looks pretty informative and I hope I can find the answers I'm looking for here.

First off, I am an American currently living and working in Kuwait. I spent 3 years in Iraq and have been here for close to two years. I bought this car about a year and a half ago, now I am not gonna lie, when I bought this car I bought it because of the price. Having been an American muscle car and truck lover all my life this Mercedes was something totally new to me. I must say I am inpressed so far. It has opened up a whole new world of driving, things I could never do in a Camaro or Trans Am this car does with ease. How about cruising at 150MPH, CRUISING!! This thing handles like a dream and it loves to go fast. It's comfy, quiet and alot of fun to drive.

What am I looking for? Well Arabs arent known for taking good care of thier cars so I have been spending time and money working out some kinks. One of which is the heater/AC, I get cold air from the two center vents and heat from the rest at the same time, frustrating. I cant seem to find the right wheel bolts for this, I'll post pics later of the ones I need. Looking for some performance bolt ons, I think there is alot of potential for some more performance from this, just need to open her up a bit. I'm not beyond turbocharging it but I don't want to get into an engine build. I would like to find a good bolt on exhaust system and better injectors.

I'll be crusing around the forums, let me know if you have any tips or tricks for this car (like how do I find out exactly what engine is in this!!??) My Vin ## is German and when I punch it into MBwharehouse it comes up invalid
