Hello all - MB Newby

Hello all - Just purchased a 2003 E320 Sport w/ 46500 miles. Very exited about my first benz. 08 Chevy Avalanche & Lexus ES 350 are my wife and I's other rides.

Not so exited about the inspection report I just recieved from the local Dealership. I purchased this from a well reviewed private seller and the car had a clean carfax/1 owner report. I brought it to them as a prepurchase in order to get the most dire report, and here it is:

1)Major leak from Power Steering Rack'N'Pinion $ 2465.00 + 4 wheel alignment $199.95
2)Thrust arms and bushings $1130.99
4)Two Engine & Transmission Mounts are collapsed $1322.00
5)Lifters for ticking noise from engine and valve cover gaskets are leaking $1575.20
6)Rear Brake Pads $189.99 and Rear Rotors $320.00
7)replace trunk latch cover $75.00

The car rides with no signs of any issues listed????

Any Help/insight or recomendation at this point would be of great help.

Look forward to learning more about the machine that I have always wanted from all way more knowledgable than me.

Many thanks
