History
First 200K Km were driven by first owner. She was a real estate agent that serviced the car (mostly) at the stealership.
The second owner was an employee of the Greek embassy who drove the car for just over 11,000 Km and serviced the car at an Indy.
I bought the car at 211,600 Km in September of 2016.

~214K: Changed spark and coolant thermostat.

~215K: Changed serpentine built and two idler pulleys.

~220K: Did a complete ATF exchange and replaced the transmission filter and electric connector at. I was surprised to find that the AT filter in the car was an after market (made in China) but at least shows that one of the previous owners cared to change the ATF (I think it was the second owner).

~225K: Insalled new oil cooler and oil filter housing gaskets, replaced the belt idler pulley, and flushed the coolant.

~226K: Changed the 4Matic differentials oil (MB Hypoid Gear Oil part no. 001 989 33 03 12). The rear differential was a breeze. The front differential was a pain in the butt.
