New here..but owner for 2yrs


As the title states, I have had an MB for 2yrs now. I drive a '95 E320 SW. She needs some work, but at 300k+ miles, still drives great. Picked her up for $1600, and have put in $2k or so in the last 2 yrs. Totally worth it. Most recent change was some new tires. Old ones were...old.

Work that needs to be done:
-A/C leaks, but gets COLD when fully charged
-Suspension squeaks every now and then
-Front and rear bumper trim is cracking.
-Paint fading/chipping in spots
-Rear hatch hydraulics are shot
-Oil slowly leaking
-Left rear window motor is broken
-headlight wipers don't work : (

Overall, she's been a GREAT car. I've totally fallen in Love with her, and after browsing the S124 picture forum, I totally envision how I want her to look. Hopefully you guys can help point me in the right direction when the time comes. Image attached.
