First-time Mercedes Owner

Hey,
I'm Jason, I'm from Seattle, Washington, and I just bought an '06 E350 that pretty much never been driven! I'm coming from a '99 BMW 540 wagon, and while I miss a few things (better wipers and wiper settings, parking sensors, and a smoother automatic transmission with a fantastic manual mode), I certainly prefer my Mercedes! Now I just need to find a place to buy parts and a place to get repairs and I'll be set...

If you find a good workshop in Nigeria the please add it to the list in the recommended workshops and if there is not a section for this then ask me and I will get one created for Africa.

Okay. I'll do that once I get a good workshop that's not too expensive.
