Hello to the group,

I am just about to become a Mercedes S320 CDi LWB owner, (pick the car up tomorrow), and so have been scouring the forums for the past couple of weeks picking up info.

Lots of great posts not only about the W220's but of Mercedes cars and quirks in general so this group, in some way, convinced me to go for the 2005 S320 CDi LWB in preference to the BMW 730d SE LWB that I also was interested in.

I have already had a couple of heart-sinking moments when reading about some of the AirMatic issues but then have also had plenty of up-lifting moments when reading of all the other wonderful aspects of owning such a prestigious car.
My car is from a main dealer and I also had it independantly checked so I should have at least a couple of years of good motoring with just the standard sericing costs - I hope.
There is so much on these cars that there is so much to go wrong - I suppose that's the trade-off for having a car that just about does everything you could ask for, (and some things I didn't even realise were available), and gives you that feeling of absolute luxury.

I am really looking forward to it.

I am probably not going to be a prolific poster but will be glad to add to any knowledge about the S320 CDi model once I have figured all the ins-and-outs myself.

Glad to know you all.
