Hi Laura, welcome. You've got your convertible in time to enjoy the summer, though Lockdown is taking the edge off it just now. There are quite a few Midlands folk on the forum, so someone will be able to recommend a good Indy for Mercedes maintenance without main dealer prices.

Put fuel in it and drive it
Check the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) (Assuming it’s an auto) has been changed
Get the cam chain checked to see it hasn’t stretched
