New Here, New to Benz

Hi There! Name is Chris and I'm new to the forum, and I just bought my 1st Benz! A 1992 300e, in pretty good shape! I picked her up for only $1000, and am dropping off at my mechanic today for a few items. The CE light is on, and it looks like a Cat, so I am curious how much I'll be in for (CA Car).
Anyway, I bought this car, because my BMW electronics fried and I needed a cheap 4 door commuter car, to carry along my 2 1/2 year old safely, and stumbled into this gem. If she lasts me 2 years, is my plan, but after driving her for a week, I have greater aspiration!
I've always bought European, much to my then parents and now wifes shagrin, but I've made a lot of mechanics rich over the years I'm sure.
So far , in no particular order, I've owned a Jag, Rover, Alfa, Triumph, a few Bimmers and now my 1st Benz. My last BMW , which crapped out on me, was a 2002 540i....absolutely loved the car, and it's performance. The Mercedes is quite a different beast, but I am hopeful I can get her in great shape and pass her onto my wifes in laws possibly in a couple years. She's a 1992 and has 165000. I'm having a tranny service done, along with the CE diagnostic. I just wanted to say HELLO and know if anyone has any suggestions, tips, etc.
