Cool What did I do?

Greetings from SE Idaho.
I recently purchased an R230 SL600 and I'm hooked! Now after visiting the shop I just hope someone or something will stop reeling me in.

As I'm gasping for air after my first repair bill, I'm hoping the bleeding will at least be slowed down enough to put bandaids on, instead of "minor" surgery.
Oh I went into this car with my eyes open but it would have been nice to enjoy the bliss for 30 days or so before multiple replacement parts start failing. Is this typical or am I just getting baptised into deep pocketville?
I did multiple searches in this .org already trying to diagnose my multiple problems so I thought it best to join the .org since my intentions are to either keep this current bleeder or at least move to the 500.
I've driven many many cars and this is one of the few cars that I really enjoy
