diesel purchase

I am considering the purchase of a '95 E300D. This car looks very nice but has 125.000+ miles on it.

Can anyone provide any info regarding things to look for and possible problems with this model car? Any quirks with this particular 6 cyl diesel engine? What future (short term) maintenance issues should I be concerned with?

All responses will be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Excellent car. In the near future I would like to pick up a 96 or 97 high mileage E300D.

I hear you should change the timing chain in these 606 engines every 100k or so. I have seen these cars with 200 and 300K miles still going along fine.

It's a great car and a great engine.
