Hey new mercedes owner...almost

Hey guys, I am ... almost a 2008 Mercedes- benz c230w owner from Toronto, Canada. I've been looking for a car for a while and i came across this beauty it had everything i wanted at a reasonable price too. So i test drove it and it was great only thing i noticed was the gas tank was running on empty. I bought it and added the stipulation that my mechanic would have to check it out before i agreed to take it. So on to the mechanics the following day... gas was still on empty but now engine light was on. Mechanic checked it out and diagnostics came back as faulty crankshaft positioning sensor! No big deal.. dealer said he would replace it and i could pick up the car on that thursday. Thursday comes dealership calls me and informs me now their tests state it has a faulty camshaft sensor and they will have to wait a couple days to get the part in and fix it. So today was the day to go pick it up all fixed up and ready... I sign the papers check everything out and as i turn on the car to leave the side mirrors extend all the way out instead of the regular 90 degrees!! The mechanics had already left so it couldn't be fixed today..sso technically i am the owner but the car has yet to leave the lot... Hopefully these aren't signs of more bad yet to come.
