First time, proud Mercedes owner

I recently purchased a 1992 Mercedes 500 SEL here in Middle TN. I am really loving the car thus far and in search of a few last items to make it as original as possible. Currently in need of four new OEM replacement floormats. The color appears to be saddle (saffron) best I can tell. Any advice on where to find these as well as the best place to look for replacment parts in the future such as starters and other things that are likely to need replacing periodically. The only mechanical thing I think I need now is a power steering line for the return side.
I am hoping I can keep this car on the road until it hits 300,000 or beyond while not having to sell a small goat farm in order to afford it. It has 219,000k on it now but seems to be in really good shape inside and out.
