The first thing I would do is check the W202 forum (what MB calls your chassis and found under the sedans heading) and troll through or search some of the threads. Then figure out what might be needed at that age and mileage, and do as much as you can yourself. Or, start a thread new there and fill the members in on the details.
The last thing I would do is take it to a dealer, unless you just want them to do a thorough inspection and give you a laundry list of what is wrong (probably $200). If the previous owner let it get dirty, chances are good that he neglected a few other things like proper maintenance.
A tune up might be only a new set of spark plugs.
