New to MB - 2008 E350


For my birthday this year I decided to purchase a 2008 E350. As I understand it's fully loaded with Panormama roof, paddle shift, AMG wheels Birdseye maple, etc. The car is used but very low mileage, 16,320. It's in great condition and recently the dealer performed the 20K service to sell as CPO. At any rate, warranty expires in two months. It has new brakes, new rotors, new tires and some other smaller items replaced at 20K service. So should be pretty sound right?

I am currently researching warranties both through the dealer and aftermarket. Any input would be great and when I have time this weekend I will begin searching through the forums.

As stated in topic, I have never owned a Mercedes-Benz before. I do however come from the online world of car enthusiasts and belong to several clubs for my other vehicles and will be interested to meet some fellow MB owners and enthusiasts.

I may or may not make some modifications to the car. I'm getting older now and flashy isn't my thing but I do like some styling modifications so any help in that area (yes, i will be searching that too) is always appreciated.

I am mostly concerned though about reliability. My Land Rovers are horrible but I knew that going in.

Sorry about the long post but looking forward to reading through and getting some help, buying some stuff and jumping in feet first to the MB world.

Thanks. (dealer photo below - I'll post some good ones this weekend when I get some real time with the car)
