1996 Mercedes S500 Coupe (W140)

Long term owner ... too many cars right now, and I am looking for another enthusiast to enjoy my lovely 140 coupe.

96 s500 coupe, 220km (137k miles)
suede headliner, leather dash & wood wheel
5spd auto, brand new tires (authentic AMGs & Yokohama 245/45/18s)
no computer codes, no leaking, ticking, creaking or squeaking
runs very well, shifts smooth, suspension parts are mostly new
cluster bulbs were replaced, plugs, fuel filter, MB coolant change, trans drain/fill (9L synthetic MB synthetic fluid) done every 40,000km (last one completed in autumn 2010)
a/c works great! so does the heat, duovalves, etc
No after market parts. All replacement parts have been OEM MB
No modifications. Original radio, amp and cd changer
Interior has no wear & tear. Seat bolsters, steering wheel, and the rest of the interior look like a 20k mile car
Wiring harness looks brand new (harness issue does not affect the 96+ 140s).
A/C has been working flawlessly
shocks and springs are new (converted from SLS to conventional)
new battery & alternator
4 brand new Yokohama tires as well
all brake pads replaced in autumn 2010
It has E55 Bi-xenon projector retrofits, installed professionally
brand new pneumatic pump installed recently (not a used one)
the plastic oil guides under valve cover have been replaced with new OEM ones from dealer

items needing attention:
pass side mirror does not fold
pass side door auto-close does not work - it's a faulty actuator inside the door. Replacement will be supplied.
rear curtain is a bit lazy when going down

located in Toronto

$12k Cdn, emission tested, all service records, clean carfax and carproof incl.

I googled w140 coupe and my car came up.. lol
