Wink New 190E owner

Hello everyone I'm the new owner of a white 1984 Mercedes Benz 190E. I actually stumbled upon it by accident but, once I sat in the drivers seat I feel in love. Sadly I really don't know anything about the car, like I said its my first Mercedes. She has roughly 220,000 miles runs pretty strong but on occasion struggles to idle smooth when I first turn her on. The idle is choppy, like its lacking fuel but after a few minutes gets over it and returns to running smooth. The previous owner put an AMG body kit on it and replaced the dash... which unfortunately covers the odometer. There is an aftermarket exhaust kit too and set of wheels. Both of which I don't really like so much. The wheels feel too racy for me, I want to get something that feels more classic. And the exhaust has an unnecessary noise tip on it that needs to go. The interior is almost flawless grey leather with only a couple small cracks on the drivers seat. The doors won't lock and the drivers side passengers window doesn't roll down. Other then that she is pretty strong. I'm eager to learn more about the car and class her up a bit. Glad I found this forum.
