Hello from Dallas, Texas.
I don't currently have a Mercedes but I'm actively looking at them and I wanted to join a users group to help me make some decisions about the right car. Right now I'm interested in an S500 or maybe even an S550 if I can afford it.
I found a 2004 S500 with 68,000 miles and all service records with an asking price of $17,500. The car looks good though it has a couple of minor dents that should be able to be popped out.
Oh, my prior Mercedes ownerships have included a 1970 280SL, a 1964 230SL, a 1975 300D, and a 1988 190E. I haven't owned any of those cars for about 15 years. I still have very fond memories of my 280SL and I hope I can find it someday.
I'd appreciate any input about the S500 regarding maintenance experience.
