New from NZ - 2003 S350

Bought the "new" car two weeks ago. The facelift version of the 2003 W220 S 350 (3.7 litre engine) model. Today it has gone in for new shocks. The left rear suspension was resting on the wheel arch. New shocks coming from Arnotts - far cheaper than buying from Mercedes in NZ.

However, what a dream car to drive. It has done 71,000 km, so new shocks not really a surprise. Handling and fuel economy (getting 8.7 l/100k) fantastic!
