New Benz Owner

Growing up in a BMW family, I fell in love with a McCoy or Capulet. (or choose your own literary reference to rival families). I spotted a 2002 E320 for sale at a local dealer. I stalked it, drove it, and bought it! It continues to amaze me every time I drive it. I did a lot of research before buying and found it difficult to find a lot of negatives with this particular model. I know it will have some and I know they will most likely be expensive....but I just felt like it was the car for me. I know I will have a lot of questions. I hope this site can welcome me into the Mercedes world. Here are my first two questions:

1. Why do I keep seeing W211 when I search for my car?

2. I have a "1 Malfunction" message on my display. What does that mean?

Thanks for having me,

(Johnson City, Tennessee - E320 owner)

W211 is the designation for this model, W stands for Wagon or sedan, here is the forum for this car;

W211 E-Class - - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

For the malfunction read the owners manual on how to use the instrument cluster and if you do not have a manual then download a pdf copy here;
