My first Mercedes Please help.

Helloe everyone , I just purchased my first mercedes , its a 2008 c300 sport coupe with 23000 miles on it. I payed 21000 for it and received 11000 for my 2005 chrysler crossfire trade. Im so excited and want to keep this car as new looking and performing as possible. Any advice on car care, detailing, waxing etc. also how is service on this vehicle and do you guys use the flex fuel option. Sorry newbie mercedes owner and i want to truly experience all this car has to offer. thanks and look forward to some of your advice

For an '08, I'd try the dealership first.

If you have not already, you may want to download a PDF version from the MB USA website. It will get you by until you pickup a hard copy.

Best of luck with your "new to you" Benz.
