the seat springs are probably worn out after so much use. mine are still good in a car the same age but it only has 88k on it. re: the idle, if you mean idle is rough even after car is warmed up (there are number of causes and fixes for rough cold idle), it may be your idle speed is too low. I would recommend the E-Class Owner's Bible, it has a lot of info about the car, as well as maintenance how-tos and descriptions of some common issues and a couple mods. It is not a repair manual but it does have some useful info in it. It has the info on how to bump up the idle by 50rpm if you have rough idle caused by too low idle speed.
