2000 slk 230 strange smell

hello all. i have a question about a strange odor that smells a little like super glue and i can't tell if it is coming from the engine or the exhaust or where. i just bought it yesterday. it has 36,665 miles on it. it has some minor issues as it is 6 years old and all, but i am surprised that the (valve?) cover on the engine has some paint that has bubble off (appears to be heat related) and i am wondering if that is the smell? any ideas?

also are slk230's supposed to have a throaty exhaust? cause i was thinking it had an exhaust leak or something. and lastly, it seems like the car shutters a little when i turn it off as the engine is settling down, is that normal? This is my first mercedes and i am not sure what i should be expecting yet.

thanks for the help
