FS: '97 S500 W140 in TX $6750

Hi - been lurking on this site a while. Great source of info.

Am selling my 1997 S500 with 160K miles. Asking $6750. Car is located in Dallas area. Have owned the car for ~1 year. Love the ride of the big chassis, but would like to move on to other interests.

I am the 4th owner. Clean CARFAX (no body, flood or other damage reported). VIN WDBGA51E8VA327782. Maintenance done since I've owned:

5/09 158K mi - new front brakes (rotors and pads), ignition coil/spark plug replaced
4/09 157K mi - (5) new Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires (incl spare)
3/09 157K mi - new front shocks and ball joints, 4 wheel alignment, valve cover gaskets replaced
2/09 155K mi - stop light switch and sampler blower motor replaced
10/08 150K mi - L & R outside door mirrors replaced
9/08 - 148K mi - door close assist replaced (front and rear door micro switches, close assist vaccuum pump)
8/08 - 147K mi fuel level sensor replaced

I stay on top of repairs - just can't see owning a big MB and living with squeaks, rattles, switches that don't work, etc. Service work done by local independent shop specializing in European vehicles that's been in the business a while. The one thing I will do should this not sell is have the Bose amp refurbished. Mid range has "hissing". I've read some great posts on Bose sound system and I'm pretty certain the amp is the issue. Also read lots of opinions on sound systems, but prefer to keep stock. Does has Alpine multi-disk CD changer that was added by previous owner, though.

I've got quite a bit more money into the car than what I'm asking, but have no complaints with the W140 ownership experience. Am open to offers, but don't necessarily need to sell.

Pics were taken 2 months ago but do represent the current condition of car.

PM with any interest and/or additional pics. Can also e-mail to mwilson141 at tx dot rr dot com. Thanks for looking.
