Process of buying!

Hi, new here to the forum.
I have always loved the styling of the W203 Mercedes and I finally found one that met my criteria and I am currently in the process of buying it. Its a 2003 C200 Kompressor Avantgarde that I will hopefully pick up at the end of this month. The car has a few things I am not sure of, first of all its a one owner and it only has 103,000KM and it's in brilliant condition interior and exterior. The problem is a coldstart, before I went to the dealership it had stood for 3 days but upon start up it was surging the revs between 500-1000rpm until I gave it some gas but another problem is a hissing noise coming from the engine when cold. When I took it out for a test drive it was fine and shifted smoothly. The cosmetic problems start at the Bose stereo which sounds like a ringing noise coming from the center speaker and the cradle in the armrest which I am sure is supposed to hold a phone but has nothing. What could I do about the problems. The dealer is servicing but that's it. Could I source the missing phone or just get rid of it? Thanks.

You might also try asking your questions on the dedicated forum for the w203 C Class where the respondents might have more experience with this model. Good Luck.
