NEW MB owner

Hi all.. I just bought an 03' E500 (Black/Charcoal) w/ the "Sports Pack"..

This is my first MB (My last car was an 00' Audi A6 2.7T), and so far I'm loving it.. I was just wondering if there is anything special that needs to be done in the 1st 1000 miles or so.. the book says to break it in, but the dealer told me that it was not necessary..

Also, this is the 1st black car that I've ever owned, and I've already noticed that it gets dusty almost immediately.. is there anything anyone can recommend to deal with this?

Thanks..

Zach

One more ?

So.. now I'm interested in getting a RennTech ECU upgrade.. what, if anything, would this do to my warranty?

BTW... here is a picture

Breakin perion/Black cars

Congrats on the new car. I've got an '03 E500 also and love it! No need to "break it in" just drive and enjoy. You might not want to test the 0-60 5.7 sec time right off the bat. Let that wait until after the first 100 miles or so. As for the Black finish. You can coat it with all sorts of special "protectants" but after having 3 black benz cars my advice is - pick a brillient silver one next time! I did!
