Question 1995 Mecedes Benz c280 A dream car or so I thought??

Hi, I bought a 1995 mercedes benz c280 from a euro dealer at the end of January/ early Feburary of this year. It's a nice car and I never saw myself owning before this. The dealer who also worked on them said that the only thing wrong with the car was the MAF sensor. I had my father-in-law with me because I'm not too keen on cars like he is. He test drove the car with the dealer, I couldn't be in the test drive myself because of my daughter. Anyway, the test drive went good and I got the car out right. Once I got it off the lot though, that's when my troubles began for this car. It was having issues getting the rpm's up and would backfire on me. I ended up replaing a lot of parts on it: (coils, coil packs, spark plugs) x2, MAF sensor x2 and I still have the hesitation issue. There was also the relay issue but that has been resolved. Before I spend any more money, Is there anyone out there that can help me figure out what is the issue? By the way anyone in the Ft. Worth area who has a Mercedes, would you recommend Park Place Ft. Worth to go to as far as a dealer is concerned? ANy help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
