Considering a 300CE 24v Sportline

Hi all,
Want to buy my first Benz, a 1993 model 300CE 24V with Sportline option, She's done 180,000 klms and in very good condition. Is there any design faults with this model I should look for when I do the Mechanical check ?
Any help greatly appreciated,
Cheers, Mark

The only design fault I can think of is having two doors. I guess I use my back seat too much... Other than that, just the usuals - wiring harness, leaky head gasket, check that the A/C evaportator has been replaced. Check that the air is equally cold in the middle and side vents. It's 15 years old - things wear out. How's the exhaust? Check it closely, as its $$. Flex discs, strut mounts? Tie rod ends?

Are you scared yet?
