1985 380SE, With M119 Engine

I was recently gifted a 1985 Mercedes Benz 380SE. My Unlce's best friends had owned the car, but died. My uncle did not want the vehicle, and transferred it to me. The vehicle is in 8/10 condition, with minor cosmetic issues. The catch however, is that the vehicle has a newer engine, an M119 from 1990. Is there anything I should be worrying about with this newer engine? The car itself has 195,000 miles on it, but the engine only has 23,000, as well as the transmission, which was replaced at the same time. I don't know very much about Mercedes Engines, so if there is anything I should worry about, please do tell

Wow, really?

I think you would get much more attention in the W126 section:

W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class - Mercedes-Benz Forum

Beware, they will be jealous. And they will for SURE want pictures, lots of them. They will also then tell you it is worth next to nothing and see if they can help you out by "taking it off your hands for you."

If you truly have this, it is a very nice thing. But I was serious about the pictures.
