Just bought a 2015 250 and prioritized the work to get it headed in the right direction had spark plugs replaced by local indy I trust. looks like water got into coils... during engine detailing we're guessing? still operable thank goodness... so moving forward New Mich tires from Costco. soon brakes on all four corners. Is there something else I should consider i would like to just enjoy the car next few months and do transmission filter/fluid change after summer it will still be before scheduled milage this fall. thoughts?

For those wondering about "indexing", here's a short read on the subject from one source

Brake fluid & consider upgrading it. Amazing the extra performance you get from fresh fluid, more so higher spec stuff.

How many miles on that car?
When was it last serviced?
Has it been regularly serviced?
What repair history so far?

All of the above should give you pointers on things needing fixing. It’s only 4-5 years old, so should be in good working shape unless abused or neglected...

Were the plugs indexed?
Terminal engine damage possible if incorrect plugs or procedure are used.

I can see where Car Fax has dealer serviced at 10k,20k,30k 50k.. not 40k... also brake fluid & pads, filters was leased then sold CPO... did quite frankly disappear for about 10k... but I took a chance due to price and options with the fact of service history that seemed to be overall ok?

This is a fairly new requirement, I would make sure.

OK I'll check that, from what I'm seeing on-line looks as if indexing is achieved by torque and using genuine MB plugs...
