Hello benzworld- advice please ?

WELL... I finally took the plunge.. my red baby has only 42000 mls- seems 100% except for the cd changer problem and a ESC/BAS light on when I goose her hard- I've read some threads that address these- any further illumination would be most welcome. Are there any other service or performance issues I should now undertake to learn/check/address ? This is my first MB and I want to explore all avenues and approaches towards keeping it trouble-free and running 100%. We don't have great top-down driving weather here in Steeler Nation- but so far so good- all roof systems seem 100%.
Thanks in advance for any and all "assist-ers"- coming up from the plunge, keeping my fingers crossed and my eyes on my thinner wallet. still learning this site's blog landscape and how to navigate all- sure would like to make some friends that have the same benz- and/or local folks!
