New to me 300E owner in So Cal

I just took possession of a 1991 300E with 150K. The car is for my 16 year old son so that I can have my truck back.

Got it from the original owner via an indie shop who had been maintaining since the mid 90's. The maintenance manual had been filled out by the dealer for it's first couple years, then with the indie shop records, this car seemed to be well taken care of. Very clean, inside and out, runs fantastic, only two or maybe three if you look hard small exterior cosmetic issues which are hardly noticeable. Typical interior issue of map pockets needing to be re-glued, the same for the covering over the drivers side B pillar. Everything I have tried works, I just need to figure out how to make it work properly, IE, how the A/C settings are supposed to be to actually blow cold air on you instead of at your feet, etc, simple stuff. It had the owners manual and all the rest of the documents that came with it new in it's nice leather case in the glove compartment. They even had the registration papers from every year in there as well, who saves those?

Drives very nice and smooth on city streets, freeway, just a real nice ride. My son likes it a lot too.

Thanks to this website (and a few others ), I was able to learn a lot of information about this series of car to ensure myself this was a good decision.

Thanks all!
