Greetings from Vancouver, Canada: New MB Owner

Glad to find this BenzForum 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 help sourcing side running boards (dealer wants to charge $2,700 parts+labour) and DVD head restd for the second row to keep the kids busy on long trips. If anyone can shed some lights on best places to go, please drop a line (locally is even better).

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

Cheers,
2009 GL
Vancouver, Canada

Hey man, nice to see another BC resident here! I'm in Victoria. I'm not sure I can recommend places in the Lower Mainland for those sorts of repairs, but I'm sure there are other Vancouver Benz owners who can chime in for ya.
