1988 W124 300E, New owner, Question

Hi I just bought a 1988 Mercedes 300e and have some questions in regard to the car
1. Are the dash board lights, speedometer, petrol guage etc suppossed to light upin the car when the lights are on, or is this done manually?

2. The car has done 207 000km and needs a service, what things should be changed, looked at etc.

3. When using the exterior lights what is the main beam position and what is the high beam.

Replies would be great, this is my first car and I need some enlightenment, cheers, Zac

hi, dash lights should come on with headlights ,if not try turning the km reset button it acts as a dimmer switch in mine.
