Can you send some Pics??

What is the "tank" in the fourth pic? A vac pump to pull the oil?

I guess that saves removing the skid cover (or wind deflection) and crawling under the car?

Yes, I would say reliable. In other words, no major repairs needed. Just routine maintenance: Tires, Batteries, Service A, Service B, the Alarm Module. I purchased when 12 years old in March 2016 with 60K miles. Service B had just been completed. I have added 14K miles in the last 3 years and completed the above mentioned service items.

People say that these V12's are hard to work on. I disagree. These M275's are rather easy to work on, surprisingly so.

That video...is that of your actual car?

2000 S430 (Dad's car, used for special occasions)
2000 S500 (wife's DD: my first W220 project car)
2003 S600 ("sex on wheels"--second w220 project car)
2003 S430 (one of two current DD's--third W220 project car)
2005 E320 CDI (the other current DD--first W211 project car)

Maybe I am old school. I do like the idea of easy access.

Also , the video does not show up for me. Can you PM me a copy?

Yes! It was done by the selling dealer, Ferrari of Salt Lake City, part of the Ken Garff Auto Group. I had been searching Maybach 57's for years, and first saw this one in 2014. I flew out and test drove it, but it sold to someone else before I pulled the trigger. That buyer was local to SLC and kept it in his airplane hangar (of course) for a year or so. Even did the B Service, but didn't drive it much. Early in 2016, I noticed it was again available at Ferrari of Salt Lake City, so I immediately pounced on it.
