I´m writing from Portugal. Sorry my english..

I love Mercedes Benz since kid. My father owned a w115 220D and now own a w123. I grew in those 2 cars.

My favourite car is the 600 SEL w140. Therre are only a few in Portugal, pearhaps, 4/5 cars.

I´m triyng to buy one. The cars has only 140000km and i in realy good shape. Paint, interiores, lmoust new. The car came from englan, but it has left steering whell.

The two problem tha i see in the car are a leak of oil from engine (not idendificated the source) and and a front tire that is irregularly desgasted. At the first sight, the car don´t evidences any past accident.

I would like to get help to make the principal maitenace work, like changing oils, filters, etc, because in Portugal de maintenance of thi car i extremly expensive. Could some elucidate me about some manul of procedures to do thi work?
Thnks, this definately would make my deciitio to buy or not, thi unique car.

My girlfriend is going to offer me the car. It´s a very beatiful car, dark blue, with grey fenders and black interiores. It´s my favourite car, 600 SEL.
When i got it, i will put pictures of it.

There´s one doubt i hve. I think that car doesn´t close the dor automaticaly (vacuum). I´m not shure, but i think it does not. The car was manufactured in 1991, one of the first. Can someone tell me if it´s possible tha the car not have that special feature?
