the water pump is an easy fix if youre handy. the part is about 50 and it can be done in 2 hours. the muffler is about 150 for ansa and labor at a shop maybe 30.
this car sounds like it has potential. check the maintenance records and try to construc t a history that verifies the low mileage. diesels with this low mileage are rare as hens teeth. if it is true that is a good thing. assume it is false unless records are compelling. trying to evaluate the mileage on a benz without records is extremely difficult even for a very experin=enced mb owner. i have owned about 30 and i would not believe low mileage without compelling paper trail.
