1985 280S?

Hi guys, I'm new to this site and am about to buy my first Benz. I'm currently testing a 1985 280S. It's in really good condition and have been driving it for two days now. I love the ride and how the car looks. Before i take the plunge, I'd like some advise on the model: quirks, what to look out for, etc. Thanks in advance for the help.

Where do you live? If this is a 280S, it's an M110 carbed version, not in the USA.

Please check the W126 DIY section at the top of the forum.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
