First Benz 1995 SL600

I'm about to finalize the deal on a 1995 SL600 with just 25,500 miles.

I hope I didn't jump in too hastily. This would be my first German car. I understand German cars can get pretty costly in maintenance at higher mileage. I'm hoping I have some time before that happens, seeing as this car has just under 26k miles.

But, if I am still in posession of the car when the maintenance fun begins, I think I am up to the task for much of the work. I'm pretty good with a wrench and have a garage full of tools. Previous projects were as involved as motor removal and assembly, complete body off restoration, transmission removal and replacement etc etc etc.

this car will be a play toy, getting very few miles per year. probably less than 5000 miles per year.

Any last minute warnings or advice before I close the deal?
