W140

For some reason, I'm just obsessed this particular model.
you should be benzdevil, but since i have a w140 as well as a w126, I would have to say that the w126 is WAY more reliable then the w140, but i love them both. They are such awesome cars.

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold

there is a huge problem with black.... the car always looks dirty, and then you clean it, and it looks good, but by the end of the day it is dirty, and you wanna wash it again, and then you just waste your money keeping your car clean.........

Lots of people saying that it’s real pain in the ass to maintain W140 S600 V12. But, it I have enough money I want to try that model.
i had mine for about 6 months, except it was new. I never experienced any maintenance, because it was brand new. I know a lot of people who have them really spend a lot to repair them and stuff, but it really is worth it. I really loved that car. It had so many extra things that you don't need, but it is cool just to have them. Hand stiched leather, 389 hp, 6.0 Liter v12. That car was superior to anything and everthing during the time when it was new. I really want one too. That car is so cool........

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold
