Also, about the camera, this is a excuse that use to work back in 2005, in 2013, it is sincerely hard to find a cell phone that does not have a camera in it...

I don't need a DSLR art piece of the glass, just a snap shot to see what you have offered for sale.
Actually I do think the windows (atleast the driver window) go down a couple/few inches for the passing of documents or whatever

How was my post rude? You're making a major claim here and you're the one calling the rest of us rude for asking for evidence; and the only ones you provide are of a wrecked w140, and stating the weight of the car which actually counters your own claim. I'm stating that there are hefty repercussions against you in the event of what you're selling doesn't infact operate to your standing claim.

Also in a realistic note:

You can't sell just the glass. If they are actually what you claim they are, then they are sitting on reinforced rails, the motor operating the window is beefed up, the interior panel is specially fitted for the thickness of the glass, not to mention the doors and hinges are reinforced....

Calling me rude...

That's the same style window as my 97' S420. It's the normal W140 dual pane window. It's standard on all S class of the 90s.

Many people outside the forum mislead others into thinking that the car is bulletproof. Sure, these are SOLID cars, but they are not bulletproof. It won't even stop a .22 unfortunately... BB gun? maybe.

You'd know it's bulletproof when it looks like it's almost two inches thick... Anyway good luck with the sale.

Yes exactly. Yours is only just two panes of glass as well. It appears like it's three panes, but it's only just two. You'll notice a solid black seal between both windows. That's not a piece, it's just a seal. There is a slight space between both panes of windows. Sort of like the windows on a nice house.

Basically your windows would be a direct fit into any 90s model S class. It's the same exact dimensions and size.

BTW, MSRP for the 95' S420 was about $73k. Still expensive though.
