96 c280 sport (first time benz owner)

I picked up my car about 2 weeks ago, with 195k miles, and it still hits 130mph without trouble. This is my first mercedes and I think that I mght be hooked. Compared to my other car a 97 nissan maxima with 180K miles the benz looks like it still has plenty of miles left in it.

The car needed some suspension work to when purchased so I have replaced the upper and lower control arms, wheel bearings, tires and rims (the old rims were bent.

I have been waiting for new shocks as well as plugs and wires that arrived today so after this weekend the car should be in great shape for winter.

I also make it a habit to change all the fluids in a used car so the oil is fresh and the transmission and differential are next on the list for maintenance.

I enjoy mechanical work and was an appretice mechanic for a year so I can do most repairs myself but mercedes are new to me so I'm sure ill need a little help. It looks like there are some very knowledgable people on these forums!! I look forward to discussing these fine cars.
