First off, I absolutely love this car. I would keep it until I was old and gray if it wasn't for upcoming grown-up decisions that I need to make. I looked for a long time for the perfect S500 before I bought this. When I was searching for one, I was considering a few things. I looked at the number of owners, carfax history, etc. Also had to be a 2004+ (these cars went through a major interior and slight exterior update in 2003, 2003 cars had issues), black on black, an S500 (5.0 V8, overall nicer on the interior), and had to be RWD for the 7 speed tranny. Just a couple things to think about if you're in the market.
