BenzWorld newb, on second MB

Greetings to all!
Finally registered after lurking--and learning--for years. Just concluded 8 years of 107 ownership, selling my cherished but worn 560SL at 176k miles and moving up to a '97 SL500. Found the car online in Florida and had it checked out and shipped with the help of my favorite local indie dealer; it's a 40th Anniversary Edition with 45k miles. I'd always loved the 107, but am newly in love with the 129; in 80 degrees with the top down on a tree-tunneled two-lane in a Michigan October, it doesn't get any better!
Look forward to the accumulated group wisdom in learning what I need to know about the new baby.
