Finally bought a Mercedes

I've had my eyes on this 1989 300SE since a friend of mine bought it new. I've followed ownership & missed out being the 3rd owner because I had moved. Well, the 3rd owner was selling after 6 years and 6000 miles. Never did too much to the car, but the car is in immaculate condition. However, mechanically it needs some TLC. I have 2 windows that don't work, mirror, antenna, and some clunking under the hood which I think might be motor mounts. The second owner said something about a dual oil pan hitting each other, but I can't imagine MB putting a car out that makes this sound.

I live in New Jersey and enjoy driving this car so much more then anyone I've owned in the past. Even though it's almost 20 years old it drives like it's new. No pep, but it may need new plugs and general tune up. I'll get to everything little by little.

Any help on my posting will be apreciated. My goal is to get this car back to as new condition as possible.

Thank you all.

Too cool that you own it now after wishing for it since 89. Any pics?
