First time owner S320

My parents have had many Mercedes in the past and my favorite was their 1997 S320. They bought it in 1998 and today it only has 97,000 miles. My Mom has only put 1000 miles in the last four years. Since they bought it I told them I wanted this car some day and have told them for the last 5-6 years that I want to buy it before they trade it in on a newer model. Yesterday they gave it to me. WOW!
It runs super smooth and rides like water skies gliding over a smooth lake. I know it's Blue book value is less than $5,000 but it worth so much more to me.
I'm a Soldier and do not have disposable income to throw at costly repairs and pray that things don't break. I'm hoping to gather insight into preventative maint and care so that big things don't happen. I have access to the shop on Post that can assist with minor repairs like brakes, tires, and simple stuff.

If you can provide advise please give it.
