My first Mercedes

Hi I just got a 1996 C280, previous owner was my neighbor ... little lady 96 years young. The car has very low miles and a few things to figure out. First the steering wheel needs adjusting and the button is missing for the steering wheel adjust. Second it leaks oil..MB dealers says it needs a timing cover gasket ($600). I have only driven it 140 miles in the past three weeks so not sure how much oil is leaking ...just a drop or so size of nickle a day.

Welcome to Benzworld Dave, $600 for that? Better find a good workshop as this is not a dealer job only;
