1994 C280 Cheap

My name is Bryan and I just picked up a 1994 C280. The price was right, only $1,100.00. for a 113,609 mile car that was always garaged. Thermostat was stuck. Now that I have drove it for 100 miles I found the cruise control does not work nor the power intena. there is an oil leak on the right side in the back that I just can't seem to see, and it leaks right onto the exoust. very embarasing at stop lights and intersections.
I have a jaguar XJ6 and a BMW 525i and a old restored MGB so this is added to quite a universal european stable. I can't place it in any order yet because of the three above mentioned problems. Can't cruise it, can't listen to the stereo, and it stinks like burnt oil. Now if I can get the driving comfort of the jag and the flawless milage of the BMW (287,924), I might end up with the perfect daily driver.
If anyone has any ideas on where to start on my problem solving it would be well apreceated. besides that I look forward to driving to work in my new BENZ.
