Smile Hi from New Zealand

I am new to this valuable forum. I have a S500 (1994) model which was made in Germany ( body in white) and imported into South Africa, and then brought by me to New Zealand. Had problems with Land Transport New Zealand who said Mercedes Benz South Africa couldn't attest to the quality of the vehicle! Had to go to court to solve that one. I have had many problems with engine harness, distributors ( which I solved), and now evaporator on air-conditioner. Seems the evaporator is a design type fault, and when I have the pictures, I'll post them for all to see. Car had done less than 100 000km
I like this car, except for the weight and the many expensive problems I have had so far.
Looking forward to inter-acting with other members who also like to solve problems without having to resort to re-building vehicle from scratch!
