1. "Motor has 117k at the moment with paperwork to show mileage upon installation"

Was the motor installed a rebuilt unit or a used one?

2. Who performed the engine work, install?

3. Are those genuine Brabus Monoblocks or imitations?

4. Can you explain the side markers on your S500? Is this a Euro/ROW model car?

Thank you.

It is a used motor from a 98 sedan...previous motor had a hose go bad and let out all the coolant which blew the motor. New radiator also installed with motor.

A place called Trolley Auto replaced the motor.

I'm not sure about the wheels being authentic or not, I'm not sure how to distinguish real vs fake rims, I just bought the car with those wheels.

Those side markers are reflectors put on by the previous owner.

Thank you I appreciate the answers.

If the wheels are real Brabus they will actually be stamped with the Brabus symbol on the inside of the lip of the wheels like this:

Oh okay well I checked and they don't have that stamp so I believe they are replicas in that case.
