1986 500sel EURO Good or Bad?

Hello everyone,

I am looking at buying a 1986 500sel euro car that has about 120000 miles and still has the german inspection for this year. Is there any major differences in the US version that can be a problem in the future? How this engine rate on a scale of 1 to 10?

The car is fully loaded, charcoal on black leather and has original paint.

This is the info I have about the engine:

4,973cc, 96.5 x 85mm, V8-cyl OHC, type M117, Bosch fuel injection
245bhp at 4,750rpm; 286lb.ft at 3,750rpm

Seems to me that is is very close to the US model 560...
