Newbie seeks advice on 500SE(UK model) purchase

Hi guys

I have the opportunity of buying a 1990 500SE for a reasonable price off Ebay. The car has covered 85,000 miles from new and has 3 previous owners, with the current owner having covered 16,000 miles in his 6 years of ownership. Up until the current owners purchase the car had a full Merecedes Service history, since then he has serviced it himself only changing oil, filters and plugs.

As I am due to view the car over the weekend, is there anything that I should look out for during the pre-purchase inspection.

Thanks in anticipation of your help.[8)]

I'd post your question on the W126 forum. Tons of knowledge there![:)]
