new owner 2000 sl500 questions (USA)

I just purchased a 2000 sl500 in USA. (I drive 98 C230 for the past 12 yrs) I have the following questions / concerns:

1. it have 65,ooo miles, cannot find the service booklet, what is the MB recommended interval for changing air, fuel and oil filters?

2. Is Mobile 1 still the recommended oil and what viscosity? It had Valvoline 5w40 oil put by MB dealer.

3. Recommended online MB part suppliers?

4. Where is the MB supplied tools kit (bag) located at?

5. Floor mats were missing, I need a contact for MB mats supplier.

6. Do I need to disconnect the battery (-) while charging it?

7. What size Allen wrench is used to manually disconnect the hard top latches above the windshield?

8. No plastic dust pan below the engine. should there be one?

9. How can I remove the engine top plastic cover?

10. Any other systems I need to charge/check beside what i mentioned above?

Please reply by item number, i do appreciate your answer and happy driving for every one.
