Post 2000 s 430


I am a new member from Montreal. Have owned three 126 cars....now driving a pristeen 420 SEL- 1986...an excellent daily driver that I have brought back to proper condition.
am looking at upgrading to a 2000 S430 that has 80,000kms on it (approx 55,000 miles)...from original owner. has all m/benz bills and has never seen winter or salt.

are there any major maintenance items or things I would need to do to car at this time?

When does one change trans fluid?

does one have to do timing chain in these cars?

thanks for any input

Goodfellow: I think you'll get more responses with better info if you would post your query in the W220 forum.

'87 300E: sold after 11years @ 230k & still on the road somewhere in rural Tennessee.

'94 C220 with 93k totalled 10/06 by hit & run broadsiding monster truck: not a scratch or bruise for me
