Yep, looks like the main issues will be the airmatic system and the tranny. The second is easy but the airmatic has its own set of issues. I started by doing the preventive repairs that SHOULD have been addressed by an MB service advisory. From there we will see.

Well I had a '00 S430 for 20k miles from new if that helps (doesn't.) It was trouble free but it was only a little over 2 years old. It is a pretty basic system once you are into it I feel. I prefer the high pressure oil system of the SL and CL but wtf, it is a minuscule diff.

Are you suffering from some type of mental disorder, Dig?
You obviously missed the part of the description which discussed the thick, blue, shag carpeted footrests in the back seat.

You've not addressed the curbfeeler issue.

No curbfeelers but this was in one of the consoles.

I am always amazed at his accuracy in can tossing. The Caddy clearly has no dents, then only the single dent when he nails it the second time.

Also, that's the body style that looks good with the Impala SS wheels. Um...minus the dents.
