Mileage can be changed from miles to KM and back from the steering controls, not an issue.
I have a 2001 w203, 2.0 petrol version.
Make sure you get all front suspension parts checked for wear, nice few quid to replace them. Also check for water on top of the brake fluid reservoir, known issue ( water drips from the grill onto the breather on the cap afaik.)
Have mine over 6 years and not 1 days trouble from it, nice comfortable car on long journeys.
