Welcome to the forum,, they are very nice cars and wonderful value for money,, just drive it and enjoy.

All I would say is do keep an eye on things like bottom swivels, easily checked by levering

They are at the bottom of the suspension just on the inside of the front wheels, they are the parts that the front wheels turn on,,they could be rusty inside, falling apart eventually , every make of car has them

Totally agree.
Still enjoy driving mine every day.Do try your boot lock with the metal key.If the key won't go in and/or it doesn't turn,spend some time and lubricant freeing it off,then get a blanking cap from an MB dealer(costs pence) to protect the innards.
