Corrosion on a 1997 E420 Sport...

I drove 2 hours to test drive a 1997 E420 Sport (Sportline suspension, 17" AMGs). The car hard corrosion around the "lighted sensor" next to the trunk keyhole, and the special contour seat had functions that didn't work, and the auto adjusting rear view mirror did nothing but vibrate and shake. A total dissapointment, and I was convinced that I wanted to buy that car. Fortunately there was a 1998 BMW 540i Sport parked right next to it. I pick it up this weekend. There was no comparison driving them back to back. I had such high hopes for the W210, I would pick a low miles W124 over it any day.
