New Owner of a Used Benz

Hi! My name's Jill. I got my Benz yesterday. I think I got a pretty good deal on it. I'm pretty happy with it. There are a few things wrong with it.

1997 Mercedes Benz E-420
121,000 miles
Regular Oil Changes
All Stock
Clean inside and out
Clean title
No wrecks
Traded a diamond ring and $1000 cash for the car.

Oil leak...pretty significant leak coming from the front. The guy says it's the dip stick. He said the previous owners broke it and didn't want to pay the price of the new dip stick so the kid I got it from made one. So, he says it's the o-ring that's not sealing properly. We will see.

A/C not blowing and not blowing going to have that looked at. Other than that no rips or tears in the leather, everything else works and it looks pretty good.

He tried to black out the head lights and and tail lights (grrr) couldn't buy covers....he had to paint them. Fortunately, found someone would could sand it and buff them out.

And then I have to change the spark plugs and wires. So, trying to see what are the best spark plugs and wires for this car are!
