New to the Benz world!

Well, where to start? I joined this forum a while ago because of it's wealth of information. Started out needing some info on replacing a power steering pump and reservoir on a friend's ML (hence username). A little background on my self... Name's Ross, 20 years old. I currently live in Long Island, NY. Had a few cars over the past few years... 2004 jeep wrangler, 1997 BMW 540 6 speed, 1997 Mustang GT, 2004 Chevy Silverado SS, in that order. Just picked up my first Mercedes last week: a 2006 S500 AMG package. I'm a gearhead so needless to say I have driven a boatload of cars. This S-class is by far one of the most interesting and comfortable cars I have ever driven, with good power to boot. I've been a die-hard BMW enthusiest which I picked up from my dad but I have to say, this car has changed my perception of the Mercedes brand entirely. What I can compare this car to at the momment is my father's 2008 BMW 750LI. I have had some decent seat time driving that. That being said, the Mercedes offers all if not more luxuries than the 7 but does it much more comfortably. I am still getting used to the COMAND system after being a self-proclaimed expert with BMW's i-drive, and although they are two different systems, offer the same features just with differnt paths of achieving the end user result. Either way, on to some pictures!
