Question 1995 Euro E220

I am considering buying this car which has 133,000kms on the clock. Its in Australia. Outside it looks particularly good, paintwork has only a few scratches otherwise well kept. Inside looks also well kept except for a stain on one door wood panel and cracks in the centre armrest edging. They say it has leather, but I can see its leather look MBtex. The engine sounds and runs turbine smooth from the front with the hood up and from inside too. I haven't test driven it, but I am impressed. Asking price is A$26999. Should I insist on an expert's thorough checkup to see if its throwing any hidden fault codes and what they cost to fix? Apart from this, should I have the rotors, brakes, trans, aircon, suspension and muffler checked? I cannot find any faults with it being an owner of only one Benz so far( a C180 1994). Many of the older W124s have been ditched due to the nicer, sportier new shape of 1996 onwards and the current models too. I find this model a bit too squarish and the front headlights very humungous. Any comments and advice form the experts and current and previous owners???

It is definately worth spending the coin for a PPI. Take it to a good indy and have him/her perform a thorough PPI. From what I have read it should take about 2 hours of labor time and cost. From this you should be able to learn much more about the car!!!!
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

2006 - Suzuki Gran Vitara (2.0 L fully equipped) Like this car so far except for trying to put on the seatbelt.
1988 - 190e - 2.3L - 172K miles (It now belongs to the exwife)
1999 - Chevy Blazer LS Fully Equiped - killed it June 2006
2001 - Honda Civic EX - 68K miles (sold June 2004)
1963 - 220S - Dual Carb 6 cyl. (sold)
1994 - Yamaha WaveRaider (fun to ride)
