It would be VERY rare not to have 'really bad experience' with a W220 S600, especially an early one! Now I'm sure a bunch of gung-ho fan boys will come on here are tell you that their best friend's grandma's son had an 03 S600 and it 'never' had any issues, so with that logic they must ALL be good cars. Watch out for the fan boy's or the owners who are in complete denial (which could be you very soon). There is a reason why your car has such low mileage...... the odometer is going to get much of a work out sitting in the repair shop.

Actually, Eric, he never had a W220 of any kind, let alone a V12, and largely talks out of his ass. That's not to say buying an S600 is necessarily a good idea, but just like there are "gung-ho fanboys", there are also people who talk crap with or without reason and our friend Mr. Xpowerseller is firmly in the latter camp.

Mind you, this is a guy who owns an example of that great monument to dependability that is a W140.

Alas...
