New Old Benz owner, maybe shouldn't have?

Hi everyone. Yaahoos from Canada. Just bought what I thought was a good deal on a S500 1994. Now find out it needs Lower ball joints, Bushings on sway link? , Front and rear springs, etc etc . About $3,000 in needed repairs. Yikes. Almost what I pd for the car. 300,000 kms ( 180,000 miles) Worth fixing? Engine runs ok, but a bumping sound when I drive also now. Sheesh...Oh well. I will return and seek advise. Thanks.

Here is the VIN.. Any info on options? Broadcast sheet info? Where could I find that?
Thanks everyone.
