Hello everyone, finally took a plunge onto the AMG world after owning BMWs for the past years.
Reading up on things to understand how Mercedes work and how to do some tweaks here and there. I see that coding is not as easy as in the BMWs (I really miss mirror folding) but enjoying the car a lot so far.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

What's the best place I can go that lists me the parts of the car and respective part numbers? Wanted to check out the front and rear brake disc and pads to understand specs, I don't see this info in the manual.
I found 'getmercedesparts.com', but it doesn`t to a VIN lookup so worried I might be looking at different specs.

Well, let me take your advice and actually use the search. So never mind my question.
Thanks for the warm welcome!
