    Charge cooler pump-£200 ish for the part then add labour to fit.
    Secondary Air Injection pump-£400 ish then labour
    Can suffer electrical problems.

    Can't think of much else on them really?, the engine and box are pretty solid.

    fuel - between 16-30 depending on how you drive
    known problems - <2004 the valeo issue, late 2004 plus and you should be ok
    - air shocks can leak
    - supercharger clutch can start getting sticky and squeek

    problems ive had
    - supercharger pump needed replacing
    - oil cooler leaked - replaced
    - keyless handle stopped opening door - replaced
    - passenger mirror wiring - whole assembly replaced
    - TPMS - all sensors and control module replaced


    as above many threads about them, go to mbworld.org, many many more posts on there too.

    good luck, main thing is, check ALL the electric toys
