W140 S500 97 first MB from the Netherlands


I'm Gerrit, 42 years old, father of 4 children. so far the private stuf.

A few weeks ago, I bought my first Benz, is is a W140 S500 from 1997, with 245.000 km.
among other options is has the following original Mercedes options:
- park assist
- power seats front
- heated seats front
- satnav
- airconditioning
- electric sun rollo for rear window
- sunroof
- carbon active air filther thing...
- Xenon
- CD-changer

I have had contact with the previous owner, who owned the car for 7 years and threated it very well.

The airco has been completely flushed and refilled, and I replaced the tail lights with the LED version.

The car has a few small rust spots, not serious.

I hope to find a lot of information about the W140

I'm planning to replace the side mirrors with the version with LED blinkers in it, and I am searching for an original center breaklight.
