Looking at a 2004 E55 AMG

I am new to this forum. I am probably at the complete opposite spectrum of car ownership (2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution) but the time has come to purchase a more "family friendly" car. I have owned german cars in the past so now the cost of ownership is quite a bit more than owning a japanse car. From what i have read its appears as these cars are very solid mechanically but do suffer from electrical gremlins (based on the below)

I also read that the supercharger clutch can fail which is an expensive part. Generally (aside form a complete service history) what are the items i should ask, look out for. The car I am looking at has 46k miles.

thanks
