My 1987 300e with 60,000 miles has developed a leak in the AC copmressor. My independent tech says I should have the compressor replaced with a rebuilt one and change over to the new refrigerant. My questions are: is this a good time to do this? Can I just add freon to the system? Is 12 years a good lifespan for a compressor? Is the new refrigerant as good as freon? And finally, what would be a ballpark cost for this job?

Thanks in advance.
