I'd go with something under warranty for my first car, but if you have your mind set on a W211 here's some advice:
1. Avoid the ones with Airmatic.
2. Make sure the 60K service has been fully done. If not, use it to bargain - its quite exprensive.
3. Get the VIN and make sure there are no outstanding MB service campaigns, and which ones have been performed, if any. There's been some issues with SBC modules on those cars.
