Pre-Purchase Inspection Check List

An acquaintance purchased a very low mile 2000 SLK and is interested in selling. The car is like new with less than 20k miles. The low miles concern me but also what interests me about the car. Does anybody have a purchase inspection list specifically for early SLK's or can you guys weigh in on what areas I should pay particular attention to? Any help is appreciated - thanks!

I personally don't like the 170's but if you like the car, it looks good, runs and drives good, no leaks or strange noises, EVERYTHING works (key because repairs and parts ain't cheap) and the price is right based on market value , then go for it. ALL vehicles will have problems just like us, a matter of how much you love it
