HELP!!! I wanna buy a C280 sports edition!!!

Hi guys, I need your help!

Im looking long and hard at this 2000 Mercedes Benz c280 sports package. I think the car is beautiful and Im a big fan of MB and their quality cars, but the maintenance issues this car has is kinda scaring me away. My question to you is how much would it cost to fix the MAF, get a complete tune up, and replace the coils? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

Asking price is $3400, here is the ad for the car

"Read the whole ad before contacting me. 167k miles. Had my car checked up because of low idling sometimes but does not stall. Most of the time the issue is not coming up but I was told that it will need a complete tune up and #1 coil pack. I do not have the money to fix it so I am selling it "as is" for $3400 firm, no penny less. Exterior and interior is in very good condition. All option plus additional OEM chrome AMG wheels 17X7F and 17X8R. 2nd owner from new, original books, manuals etc. serviced this year i.e. AC recharged, air filte, oil/filter changed and brand new Falken tires. Clean title on hand, clean carfax and autocheck with buyback guarantee and smogged was done 2weeks ago. Registered until 1/2010.

Alarm"





Thanks again,
David

Ask the seller when the "sealed for life" electronic automatic transmission was serviced, including the 7 or so liters of "Mercedes" only fluid that goes into it. At this point in the car's life, particularly given the mileage, I'd also want to know about the tie rods, steering damper, serpentine belt & tensioner . . .

The OEM Bosch coil on plug for the C280 is $237.50 (each) retail at the dealership, but is available for around $60 (each) online. If replacing all, you'll need six.

The wire set is around $220 at the dealer $140 online, for all 12 wires (2 plugs per cylinder).

12 spark plugs

The Bosch MAF retails for $445.25 (again, Dealer), but is widely available for $180.00
