Ready to Buy 86-89 560SL

I am selling my 1992 400E in favor of an SL that my wife enjoy driving as well her only requirement is a red one.
couple of questions after driving 2 of them today:
1988 with 154K they wanted 11K I offered 9K, no deal yet. Car was very tight, good brakes.
There is a hard shift from 1st to second in my 400 this is normal any comment on the 560?
She said the AC was just serviced, yet I could not get it to get cold, is there a compressor switch somewhere?
Is 154K the end of life for these?
There was a rough idle, but good acceleration, car has been sitting, feels like it needs a tune up, wires look tired.
all dealer service records were included, all sched. maintenance done, both tops in great shape, needs interior help, both fuel pumps just replaced.

Is there anythign else I should look for, check?

Thanks in advance,

John
