Proud Owner of a 1997 S420

Hi All, I bought my gold 1997 S420 beauty about 6 months back on the recommendation of my mechanic (who happened to be the seller). When I first saw it, it'd been in a minor fender bender whereby the front left headlight had been crushed. I was put off a little at that point but when he was done with it (new light and fresh paint), it was a sight to behold. I admit I never thought of owning a Mercedes before simply because I thought I couldn't afford one and because I was attracted to speedy looking rides like the Nissans and Bimmers. But once I sat down behind the wheel I was hooked by the supple leather seats, the wood trim, the great sound coming out of the Bose system and the roar of the V8 when I turned the key. Although it's a '97 it still has looks to rival any car on the road and I always marvel at the features it has. It's always a smooth ride and anyone whose sat in the rear can't help but love how spacious it is back there. Having owned and driven many newer cars I can proudly say my '97 S420 puts more than a couple to shame.
