With the tranny & evap done, they should be good until 500k now. The engine is next up, and the suspension may need attention eventually but that won't be more than a grand or two for everything. The car was $75k back then and at least that for a W220 now, so IMO it's worth fixing & keeping the car, assuming you like it (which it sounds like you do). Brian is correct though, some basic diagnostics would be a good idea just to make sure it's not something else, like a freak turbo failure on the 20k rebuild. If you can do general DIY work on the car, that also keeps the costs down. I think you can get printed manuals for the W140, if not, there's always the factory WIS system for service/repair procedures.
