Question Almost an owner - 2007 SLK 280


i've done the calcs and all that's left is a little research and negotiation then i'll be the proud new owner of a pre-loved 07 slk280.

the emotional decision was made after 5 mins driving!

so i thought i'd come to the experts and ask if there's anything i should be aware of with this car?

the one i'm close to buying has 19,000kms on the clock (or for the metric impaired 11,800 odd miles).

obviously i don't want anything major going wrong in the 1st year or ever but would like to know about all the warts this car may have.

if any of you have this car now, have you had any major expenses to fork out that weren't track-day, modification or accident related?

any advice would be more than welcome!
