One thing to remember when looking at one of these old models is that almost all the rubber is going to have to be replaced, if not now, then soon. I have a '97, and I've replaced a lot of rubber. And, when I check the conditions of some of the o-rings that are parts of the engine that I replaced just a few years ago, and see what condition they are in now, I can't imagine the conditions of all the o-rings inside the pistons.... Frankly, the next time I buy another benz, it'll be something much more recent, but after the first half of the 2000's (I'm generalizing, of course), because that's when mercedes (bmw too) dropped the ball on reliability.
