Another FIrst Time MB Owner

Glad to find this BenzWorld forum as I just picked up an 09 GL this past Thanksgiving weekend as part of the MB pre-owned year end clearance. Got everything done in one afternoon as I traded in my Lexus RX330 for this 7-seater, and surprised my wife with her dream car!

I had plan to seriously look at/buy a 2013 Infinity JX and was going to test drive a 2013 GL but was told stock won't arrive until March 2013. After the test drive, I was sold on this GL given the savings on this 2009 vs a 2013.

Right off the bat I'm looking for side running boards (dealer wants to charge $2,700 parts+labour) and DVD head rests for the second row to keep the kids busy on long trips. If anyone has any insights or recommendations on for where to source for the best deals, please drop a line (locally in Vancouver is even better).

Looking forward to share experience and seek ideas from other MB owners.

Cheers
