First off, look at the top of any of the W210 forum's pages (that's the MB chassis designation for it) and you will see the Sticky threads. Common problem areas for this series of E-Class are listed there. Unless there are some major issues, $7000 sounds like a fair/good price.
You should use the MB recommended 91 octane gas and there is a FSS (flexible service system) that will tell you when to change the oil (approx. 10-13.000 mile intervals). Most here suggest changing at least some of the transmission fluid & filter around 50,000 and then again every 30 or so. If you manage to change it all (steps also in Stickys), less frequently is fine.
