Thank you!!! Having these tools would certainly be a big plus in family with 4 MB cars for certain!

Whaaaaaat??? Mercury? Boy did I over paid for this car!!! I can only imagine, drive along, get pulled over, registration for Mercury, and somehow Mercedes is what's driven?
Back to DMV I go, good thing I like what I drive and purposely went to the rural area DMV for the enjoyable twisty country roads! Arrived with just minutes to spare!!! Lady was very very very apologetic, all fixed all good!!! Mercury... Wonder which one?
Back home, it is the first time I actually see the car in the daylight at home since I bought it. Popped the hood, checking the fluids. Power steering fluid just a bit low. I try to read online, which fluid. Finding conflicting info in various places. Q 1 32 0001 vs Q 1 46 0001 (latter I have, the Pentosin I do not). So to be sure, and going to stop by to purchase if needed. I call the dealer, have my VIN ready.
"What year and model is your car?"
"2004 E500 4matic"
"Pentosin, full synthetic, have it here in stock"
"So it is definitely NOT the basic 1 46 0001 that comes in the grey bottle, I can read you my VIN"
"No no, Pentosin"
"Ok, just so you know, my car does not have Active Body Control, just the Airmatic"
"Ohhhhh, then, if you don't have that, it the regular, grey bottle 1 46 0001"
"Thanks for your time, have a good weekend..."
Back to the car, inserted the cotton swap into reservoir, just to be sure, yellow, definitely not green. Out of all places, shouldn't the dealership folks care enough to offer correct info or am I expecting too much and my standards our out of realm?
