1989 300E

First of all let me say thank you for this forum. I have been reading several threads and already like what I see. I DO NOT own a Benz YET, but I am looking at one. It's a 1989 300E with 89,000 miles on it. I have only seen pictures so far, but I like what I see. My biggest concern with this car is that it has been sitting in a barn for about 4 years. The interior looks imacculate, the paint looks decent, no dents, minor scratches in the black paint. With all of the experience on this forum, what should I look for when I go to inspect this vehicle? The seller is "asking" $2,900 for it but I don't plan on offering that for it. I am sure I will be replacing items such as gaskets or seals that will develope leaks. Thanks for any and all input!
