Newbie @ Europe (Ger)

Hi there,

Just a few words of me....

I'm from little Germany and own a MB W140 built in 96.... Friends of mine import such cars from Japan. Advantages are nearly perfect conditions and fully loaded vehicles.....

Cause petrol seems to become liquid gold, I bought my car as a toy for summer and to have something to put my magic hands on :-)

Having another car for everthing else, I haven't been frightened to choose a W140 with a big engine....

So I did buy a W140 600SEL - I know it sounds like a story of 1001 nights,
but believe me that I bought my Mercedes after a meal on a restaurants parking area just being shown one single picture on an iPhone of a car still beeing parked on a japanese harbour by shaking hands....
My friends just had this single picture of an auction. I fell in love in just one second not even knowing what condition it could have.

Beeing the luckiest guy on earth, the car did arrive 6 weeks later in perfect condition, fully loaded, less than 100000 km on the clock, having can-bus system and replaced engine wire-work (problem of this model)

In the end of the day I had more than luck!

Welcome to Benzworld. Very nice choice of car. 96+ didn't have any issues with the wiring harness but if it was replaced that shows the owner kept good care of it (seeing as how it's an expensive repair and all)

You ought to come post some pictures of your S600 in the W140 section
