Hi Josh, you might consider asking on the W210 forum too, that's what you are considering. Briefly though, any car with 180,000 miles means you're taking a chance. I would want to see the service records. But for $2500 you could part it out and recoup your money after running it up to 200,000. 9 years/180,000 miles is only 20,000/year so in that sense the mileage is not that excessive. I think average is more like 15,000/year if it was a daily driver. Tires and windshield are not a big deal but be careful. That car has a rain sensing wiper and some aftermarket windshields are not compatible with that system. I know because I have a W210 with an aftermarket windshield (replaced by previous owner for some reason) and the rain sensing function has never worked to my level of satisfaction. Good luck.
