New to MB and BenzWorld

Greetings from Ontario, Canada!

I just purchased a 2006 R500 4matic with 31,986 miles on the clock. Test drove the Infiniti FX35 and Lexus RX350 and while both were a pleasure to drive, they paled in comparison to the R500. What a pleasure to drive!

Now I'm trying to find some info about maintenance, like how often the oil needs to be changed, what kind of oil it takes, etc.

I haven't taken delivery of the car yet, but I was trying to find out the color. It looks light beige, but the dealer has it down as silver. My guess is either the Desert Silver Metallic or Pewter, but I'm leaning towards the Desert Silver.

Any input would be most appreciated.
