My First Benz S430 2001

Hi Guys,
Yesterday I got my First benz car. I have been thinking about it for a long time. I had couple BMW's , but this Benz is the first time. I love the Ride and comfort in it. Mine is about 106,000 miles and very well maintained by old lady. I paid $9000, the interior and exterior is in excellent condition.I'm the 3rd owner. Everything works in it except the Navigation. Looks like the Navigation cd is missing.I live in Topeka close to Kansascity.

Need your advice on preventive maintenence at 106,000 miles. and what fluids to use for Transmission, OIL change and Power steering fluids.

From the Service records, I found the following work done on it.
At 90,000 miles brakes are done and "B" service done
At 94,000 miles Lower Left and Right control arms replaced
At 94k Airmatic leaking are fixed in the Struct towers repair Upper struct air chambers
At 98K oil change and Recomding for Transmission fluid change. Pl sugget any cheap and good trans fluid.
Also pl help me about navigation cd - I heard we can burn the cd and use it.

Thanks Ram.
