Buying a 1993 S320 220000kms

I'm thinking of buying a 1993 S320 W140 always wanted an early model Sclass. This is my first MB, the car looks good exterior/interior with a clean looking engine are there any issues associated with a high mileage W140 I should inquire about? since the car has high mileage. Help me guys the information would be appreciated.

Well with any car have it examined by a good mechanic. There are 3 basic areas - interior, exterior and mechanical (engine, transmission, breaks, ...) you can judge the first two fairly well but the third -especially on a high milage car - is difficult. Spend the $100 or so for a full inspection.

I know good inspection cost more like $300.
Look for my topic about PPI that can give you some starting points.
