Returning Veteran MB Owner

Having owned a 1995 S600, I relinquished it when the warranty period was up. Deciding the new S-Klasse was no big deal at the time (2002/3), I bought other vehicles. The new S-Klasse was simply too 'small' when compared to the W140 bodystyle.

Having decided I missed the big bulkiness and smooth & quiet ride of the 'old' S-Klasse, I was interested when I came across a 1999 version of what I had previously owned.

And now I'm back in the fold! Terrific that my old car cover fits, extra 'gear' I had in the 1995 version still works and I'm looking forward to taking this 1999 version to task!

Anybody have a similar experience, reviewing the 'new' S-Klasses versus the W140 bodystyle, and finding the older style wins out?

Thanks for the Welcome!

To whatever extent available, I'd like to trade good tips on maintenance for these beasts to keep them in the best shape possible.

I'm hopeful that M-B keeps inventory of parts for awhile, how have you folks found accessing parts on older cars?
